Perhaps you’ve heard the songs, now it’s time to own them. Run to your local record store. Get your mouse to clicking. Yeasayer’s Fragrant World is officially out. Looking to score it on the limited edition blue vinyl? Head to SC Distribution.
Last night Yeasayer returned to Jimmy Fallon for a follow-up to their “Ambling Alp” performance in 2010. Celebrating the release of Fragrant World, Anand, Chris and Ira performed “Longevity” with their new live percussionist Cale Parks. The dudes also unveiled quite a fancy stage and light set-up designed by Creators Project. Get your dancing shoes – it’s time to groove. Watch above!
Love for Fragrant World
“But overall, Fragrant World is a sexy, infectious compilation of conventional musical tropes, filtered through Yeasayer’s dark kaleidoscope.” – Paste
The songs throughout Fragrant World are arrestingly forward-thinking without shying away from invoking music’s rich pageantry. – Under The Radar
“This is a record of adventure and texture, an attempt, musically, to conjure up a future we may never actually have. Maybe that is kind of nerdy, but Yeasayer carry it off with style to spare.” – Drowned In Sound
