There's not a music blog out there which hasn't piled in on the hype for the new Yeasayer album; and i'm in no way exempt. Odd Blood is setting up to be an early 2010 gem. They've dropped another track from there in the form of the more downbeat Madder Red (read about/download the first) and taken yet another step away from the sound which they featured on 2007's All Hour Cymbals. There's wailing pop song vocals, power chords and 80s synths with epic drumming - this is a song nothing like the name suggests.
Yeasayer - Madder Red (MP3)
Odd Blood is due out February 9, 2010 on Secretly Canadian Records
