Video of the Moment #1358: Yeasayer

By on Sunday, 20th October 2013 at 10:00 am

Brooklyn psych pop band Yeasayer have always had quirky videos as long as I can remember, so it’s no surprise that their latest for ‘Glass of the Microscope’ is also. It was filmed at Leiden University, aka the place where Antony van Leeuwenhoek invented the basics of what we now know as the modern microscope. Watch Yeasayer’s unusual video, in which the band pose as scientists just like him, below.

Yeasayer have revealed their new video for ‘Longevity’, from their new album ‘Fragrant World’ unleashed to the world last week, and you can watch it below. Compared to the celebrity-starring and just plain weird video for ‘Madder Red’, this video sees the Brooklyn band- or rather an ageing version of them – playing the song in a church. Relatively normal for Yeasayer, all things considered.

Now, I’m one of those kids who grew up in the Reagan ‘Just Say No’ generation. So something that promotes drug use isn’t my thing. Take for example this weird new video from Yeasayer for ‘Henrietta’, with a YouTube description that it’s ‘vignette to take drugs to created by Yoshi Sodeoka. What?

Take a trip – however you fancy – with the video below.



Video of the Moment #342: Yeasayer

By on Wednesday, 8th September 2010 at 6:00 pm

There’s some contention brewing on YouTube that Yeasayer copied fellow NYC brethren MGMT‘s idea of weirdness in ‘Congratulations’ for the promo vid for their latest video, ‘Madder Red’. We’re not sure whose idea was conceived first and we’re not going to take sides. Nevertheless this is one weird video to watch. It’s slightly tempered by the presence of ‘Veronica Mars’ star Kristen Bell. (If you have a fear of hospitals, you may wish to avert your eyes during the second half of this.)


‘Madder Red’, the new single from Yeasayer, will be released in the UK on 13 September.

Preview: T in the Park 2010

By on Tuesday, 4th May 2010 at 12:00 pm

Even with many acts still to be revealed, the lineup for Scottish festival T in the Park is looking pretty impressive.  From 9th to 11th July, 2010, thousands of punters will descend upon a disused airfield in Balado, Kinross-shire for a weekend of camping, shopping, carnival attractions and music across 7 stages.

Friday night see’s live favourite Muse headline the main stage, which will also be graced by Paloma Faith, Faithless and other artists yet to be announced. Rather disappointingly, the Radio 1/NME Stage will be headlined by American pop group Black Eyed Peas, who are, in this humble blogger’s opinion, an incredibly obnoxious band. They’ll be playing after TGTF favourites Florence and the Machine and The Temper Trap, as well as Jamie T. Another questionable choice is 3Oh!3 in King Tut’s Wah Wah Tent, though they’ll share the stage with great bands like Calvin Harris, Hot Chip, La Roux and Dirty Projectors. And finally, the Red Bull Bedroom Jam Futures Stage will see Echo and the Bunnymen and TGTF favourite Delphic on Friday.

It’s a toss-up between Saturday and Sunday for which day has the best lineup this year. Rapper Eminem will make his debut T in the Park appearance as Saturday’s Main Stage headliner, marking his first festival performance since 2001. The Main Stage will also see performances by Paolo Nutini, Stereophonics, Vampire Weekend and the Proclaimers. The Radio 1/NME Stage is pretty amazing on Saturday night, with a lineup including The Prodigy, The Courteeners and Wolfmother, and King Tut’s Wah Wah Tent is looking equally fantastic. It’ll see the likes of Mumford and Sons, Rodrigo y Gabriela, We Are Scientists and Kate Nash. Other notable artists like Julian Casablancas, Laura Marling and the Middle East will be gracing the Red Bull Bedroom Jam Futures Stage on Saturday.

Rockers Kasabian headline the Main Stage on Sunday, playing along with other massively popular artists like Jay-Z, Biffy Clyro, John Mayer and Dizzee Rascal. The Radio 1/NME Stage is looking good, too, with performances by Groove Armada, the Cribs, Babyshambles and Rise Against throughout the day. Some of the best up-and-coming bands of the festivals can be seen Sunday on the Red Bull Bedroom Jam Futures Stage, including Bombay Bicycle Club, the Drums, Yeasayer and Two Door Cinema Club.

The festival sold out within 90 minutes,  so if you don’t already have tickets, I’m afraid you’re out of luck. Let us know what you think of the lineup!
