With every new album they release, Yeasayer’s fame grows rich with new haters and new fans. Admittedly, I was a bit skeptical about their opening single, “Henrietta,” and still am — but they could be doing worse, and the new single, “Longevity,” definitely pleases me at least a little bit. Be warned: the direction they’re heading is definitely hella pop — more similar to Odd Blood than All Hour Cymbals, by a long shot. So, those of you who are mourning Yeasayer’s past need to just get over it, and they’ll tell you that in their “be here now” affirming “Longevity”. Both “Longevity” and “Henrietta” can be heard below via prismatic vignettes — or music videos, for laypeople — created by video artist Yoshi Sodeoka. For the latter, the band themselves recommend drugs. Fragrant World comes out August 21st on Secretly Canadian.
