Yeasayer - "O.N.E."

Yeasayer's forthcoming album, Odd Blood, is the follow-up to the band's terrific, genre-blending 2007 debut, All Hour Cymbals.

On Odd Blood, the band takes its brand of culturally diverse pop music to new frontiers. Where its predecessor could generally be found someplace between Western and Middle Eastern influence, Odd Blood sounds almost like worldbeat for an Earth-like planet in a distant solar system.

One of the album's songs that has found steady rotation for me lately is "O.N.E."

"O.N.E." is like an '80s pop gem funneled through hazy reverb and tribal rhythms. There's something both nostalgic and futuristic about the song that's enough to start a global dance party. You can listen to it below:

And don't forget to watch the surreal video for "Ambling Alp" (via YouTube) - complete with creepy face massage, liquid floating heads and naked desert jogging!
