Stream: Yeasayer’s ‘Fragrant World’


    Well, you no longer have to scour the web to piece together Yeasayer’s new album Fragrant World because all of the videos have been found. Listen to the album in its entirety below. [H/T CoS]

    We have received a message that we are on the verge of embargoed information being leaked through the cracks of the digital universe. Once again an attempt to tell the story before our mouths can spit. In order to have the edge we have created PSCYVOTV standing for PREEMPTIVE SELF-COMMISSIONED YEASAYER VORSTELLUNG or TRACK VISUALIZER.

    Using the talents of Yoshi Sodeoka we have created a moving visual for every song on our new album FRAGRANT WORLD and have hidden them all over the internet. The visuals will live on the web until Friday Aug. 3, at 8pm EST. You’ll have a few days to find, listen, and most importantly, hear the album from our hands first. At 8pm sharp PSCYVOTV will be removed.

    If you find all the visuals remember the track listing:

    1. Fingers Never Bleed

    2. Longevity

    3. Blue Paper

    4. Henrietta

    5. Devil and the Deed

    6. No Bones

    7. Reagan’s Skeleton

    8. Demon Road

    9. Damaged Goods

    10. Folk Hero Schtick

    11. Glass of the Microscope

    Yeasayer are no strangers to fan-friendly, unconventional ways of getting their music out. The band personally mailed 200 CDs of the single “Henrietta” to fans earlier this year, and they’ve also been known to play secret shows. And this week, Yeasayer is trying something completely different: new album Fragrant World will be released through an online scavenger hunt.

    Fans/sleuths will be able to hear all eleven of the album’s tracks this week–that is, if they unveil the myriad clues. According to the band, they’ve made eleven videos corresponding to the album’s tracks and hidden these videos across the web. Fans are encouraged to follow the Twitter accounts of Yeasayer (@yeasayer) and their label Secretly Canadian (@secretlycndian) in order to get more clues, and they have until 8PM this Friday (August 3) to find the videos before they’re removed. If you’re not up for all the fun, you can always wait until August 21 when Fragrant World gets its proper release.
