DOSA HUNT Trailer from amrit singh on Vimeo.

Check this out. Yeasayer’s Anand Wilder takes part in what is being called “the greatest hunt for Indian food in NYC ever committed to film.” In Dosa Hunt, Anand and friends set out to fill their tummies in a New York City food endeavor. You’ll notice some other indie-music familiars: Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij, Das Racist’s Ashok Kondabolu and Himanshu Suri, Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo, Stereogum‘s Amrit Singh, and Vijay Iyer from the Vijay Iyer Trio all pile in a van to scour the city with no dosa left untouched (or uneaten?). Watch trailer above and prepare to be hungry!

Watch Yeasayer “I Remember” Video, Free EP, Tour Dates

Yeasayer know the value of a good holiday gift, providing Live At Ancienne Belguiue on Christmas, playing New Years Eve in Chicago.

And on Valentine’s Day, the band brought forth a new video for “I Remember” alongside a free I Remember EP, featuring the album version as well as a remix by Painted Palms and Villa.

Yeasayer will be back on the road beginning in May with the Smith Westerns serving as most of the support.

Check ‘em out, after the jump.

ODD BLOOD has been topping Best of 2010 lists left and right — Rolling Stone, Spin, Myspace (NUMBER ONE!) etc, etc.

And before Yeasayer ring in the New Year in Chicago, they stopped by a Brooklyn holiday party to join Suckers for some choice 90s covers. Anand Wilder does lead vox on “You Oughta Know.” It really challenges Beyonce’s take of Alanis Morissette’s angst-fueled classic.

Check out all the videos and a recap on Stereogum.

Yeasayer’s NYE show at the Metro is sold out, but tickets are still available for the New Years Eve, Eve show here.
