The band was formed in 2006 and consists of three core members, Chris Keating, Ira Wolf Tuton, and Anand Wilder. They first came to attention after appearing at the SXSW festival in early 2007. Their debut album All Hour Cymbals was released in October 2007. Yeasayer described their music as “middle eastern-psych-snap-gospel”. Live performances often include psychedelic visuals. Yeasayer released their second studio album, Odd Blood, in February 2010, featuring more pop music influences than earlier work. The band revealed that the album came out of a massive acid trip in New Zealand. Peter Gabriel’s drummer Jerry Marotta helped to record Odd Blood in an upstate New York studio packed with rare synths and percussion instruments from around the globe to create the characteristic worldbeat sound of the album. Yeasayer released their third studio album, Fragrant World, in August 2012. According to the Fingers Never Bleed Songfacts, it was named after a track that didn’t make the new album’s final cut. LABYRINTH EAR Labyrinth Ear are an electronic duo made up of London born Emily J and Tom E. They take their inspiration from film soundtracks, foreign pop and techno and have been described as “Ice-disco with a warm beating heart”. ‘Oak’ EP was released as a free download, in December 2010 and has since been downloaded over 15,000 times. They have also produced some well received remixes for artists including Alex Winston and Local Natives. In 2011 the band released a rework of Arthur Russell’s ‘This is How Walk on the Moon’, the track was widely well received and made XLR8R’s ‘Best Downloads of 2011? list. ‘Apparitions’, their newest EP, was self-released digitally on the 7th Feb 2012 and the tracks ‘Amber’ and ‘Humble Bones’ have received coverage from likes of Pitchfork and The Fader.
