A Blast From The Past – Yeasayer, Windmill Brixton, August 2007

Posted in Gigs, Music Reviews, Music Video with tags , , , , on January 23, 2009 by musicmuleblog

This was the first time I saw the marvellous Yeasayer back in 2007. They were unsigned and unheard of and I went to check them out on the back of an mp3 I downloaded from the excellent texas blog Gorilla vs Bear. The audience totalled about 40 people but the band really went for it from the go. I was blown away by them and tried to get everyone involved on the remainder of their first few UK dates. Needless to say they did quite well from there on in. The video of the band performing ‘2080’ above is pretty awfully shot by my unsteady hand and the damn Paparazzi is getting in the way but I think you get the idea.

Another Brooklyn band, another very good Brooklyn band. It’s getting a bit too easy isn’t it New York?! Infectious harmonies and pop tunes hidden under layers of distorted guitar, Vivian Girls come to convert us. On evidence of their debut album this is one not to miss.
