Yeasayer: Fragrant World

Yeasayer’s music typically demands patience and repeated listens, elements that lack a bit from this release as the songs don’t reveal many hidden layers.  With Fragrant World, they miss the mark a little bit, but it’s still a noble enough attempt to keep people interested in following their career arc.
