Yeasayer - All Hour Cymbals

I never bothered to upload this when it first came out becasue it was pretty widespread when it first leaked, but I'm running out of enjoyable 2007 releases to share. When I read that they described their own sound as "Middle Eastern-Psych-Pop-Snap-Gospel" I was a little leary. Perhaps it would be more appropraite for them to describe their sound as fucking sweet. After the initial shock, it took about a half-second for their sound to grow on me, and it turns out their description is exactly right. Whether you enjoy it or not, it's hard to believe this is the bands debut album. They have a very well developed sound that will easily stick in your memory. For fans of the Phosphorescent record I posted a while back, and most certainly Animal Collective.
