Squelch squelch squelch.

The first time I saw Yeasayer, singer Chris Keating was crawling around Jools Holland's TV studio floor. It was pretty memorable.

Their new album, Odd Blood is about 13 and a half times as good as their first one. Not that that wasn't great. Odd Blood is a glorious mélange of every musical style you've ever heard, and several that probably haven't been invented yet (and will most likely be banned by concerned parents when they are). The band describes themselves as "Middle Eastern-psych-snap-gospel". Yeah.

"Love Me Girl" is my favourite track. It is the aural equivalent of your brain melting out through your ears like soup while being outside on an uncomfortably hot day.

Doesn't that sound appealing?
