Amen & Goodbye

Release Date
Yeasayer return after a four year gap with their fourth album, and one which has been described as a move away from a digital approach to recording, and a return to tape. Not that anyone would notice it from this batch of pristine tunes. It's a record of two halves, the first being clinical pop which is upbeat but hardly memorable. Side B is freakier and sounds more organic, its a complete mess in many ways, but enjoyable all the same. Listen to The many short interludes scattered through the latter part of Amen & Goodbye, often far more interesting than the proper tracks that they bookend.
