Arty, spiritual, and geographic kin of Animal Collective, Yeasayer's bustling and pan-global indie rock has undergone various transformations over the years. The group's 2007 debut, All Hour Cymbals, employed world music rhythms behind a psych/prog blend of soaring vocal harmonies and a kaleidoscope of instrumental tones. Its 2010 follow up, Odd Blood, balanced big production, pop instincts, and bonsai thickets of synthetic texture. The group's latest, Fragrant World, explores heavily processed beats and icy blue-eyed soul.
