You may remember my post about the band Yeasayer. I believe I mentioned that they would be releasing a new single and album within the next few months. Well, that was back in August, and that time has come. Well, sort of.
"Ambling Alp" is the first single release from their sophomore album "Odd Blood," which will be released in February 2010. Ambling Alp is epic. Seriously. I wasn't really impressed with the song the first time I heard it, but it has blown up on repeat listens. I mean, I've listened to this song maybe twenty times in a row. It's ridiculous. Check the music video out (posted above). It's visually stunning. Plus, whoever came up with the concept was seriously high, because this shit is trippy, man. I love it.
For that matter, even my mother loves this song! And she is a woman of discerning taste. Her favorite lyric is, "Now, the world can be an unfair place at times, but your lows will have their complement of highs." That's my favorite lyric too. See? Brilliant. Good taste obviously runs in the family.
