    Yeasayer will release their anticipated new album Fragrant World ìn August on Mute, the follow up to 2010’s crossover hit Odd Blood. Having set the internet alight with the teaser track ‘Henrietta’ last month, as well as Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record In The World Right Now’ on Radio 1, the psychedelic experimentalists from Brooklyn are set to make an assured return with their most accomplished album to date.

    Odd Blood was widely regarded as one of the best albums of 2010, hitting everyone’s end of year lists including NME, Mojo, Q, Uncut, The Fly and The Sunday Times. A hard act to follow, certainly, but Fragrant World does not disappoint. Produced once again by Yeasayer themselves (and mixed by Dan Carey), it is a wholly immersive record. Keyboards clank and wheeze, tiny claps stumble against busted drum machines, and there's very little obvious guitar. It is an album that grapples with the schizophrenia of the modern world by gathering piles of electronics and moulding them into something vast and rather gorgeous.

    Couched in healthy fear, yet unafraid to move forward and expand, pulling in new influences just as frequently as new worries, Yeasayer have created a dense and beautiful record. It is as much a synthesis of the last three decades of pop music as it is a way of dealing with the oddities of life.

    Tickets for Yeasayer are on sale this Friday from Ticketmaster outlets and online at www.ticketmaster.ie
