Yeasayer - Fragrant World (Mute)
Surrounding the release of Yeasayer's sonic-pop gem Odd Blood in 2010, the Brooklyn based psychpop band became the internet's most blogged band of the year. Apparently. God alone knows what kind of bad science goes into formulating that kind of statement though. Whilst a dubious fact at best the accolade could equally well inspire pressure-induced crises of confidence or grandiose arrogance in a young band so it is with a certain curiosity that Fragrant World arrives in the Bearded inbox.
