I am a little bit obsessed with...

The fantastic photographer-Doron Gild
YEASAYER! I must say, they were my favorite act that I caught during CMJ. Second only to The Maccabees. Their live show is so intensely packed with emotion that pours out of their lead singer, Chris Keating without any sign of restraint or remorse. With songs that literally come alive, even in the smallest of spaces (Cake Shop, KEXP in studio, R Bar) Yeasayer impressed many people this past weekend with the songs riddled with tales of omens and strife. Whether or not you can decipher every clever lyric or not, it is highly infectious and overwhelmingly beautiful. Despite being musically exhausted from this past week my ears are still longing for more of their live set. I only wish that they were sticking around their home town a bit longer, but alas they are traveling to Europe where they are sure to garner even more acclaim and admiration. But hey, they are one local band that we should proudly export.
