Listen // Yeasayer Perform Live on WXPN’s World Cafe, Interview Too

Listen up! Yeasayer stopped by Philadelphia’s WXPN for a live in-studio performance and interview with David Dye on World Cafe. The four-song set includes “Longevity, “Demon Road,” “Blue Paper” and an especially grooving take of “Henrietta.” All songs are from their August 2012 release, Fragrant World. Songs and interview available HERE.

“…the band’s latest album, Fragrant World, marks a departure: Density is no longer the name of the game. With its (relatively) spare arrangements, Fragrant World is less about stacking lots of pretty sounds on top of one another, and more about tightening the focus on the individual elements of each song.” – Dave Dye, World Cafe
