Yeasayer: Interview

They released one of my favourite albums of 2012 and so I was delighted to then sit down for a chat with Yeasayer lead singer Chris Keating, a few hours before their rescheduled Dublin gig on December 1st. Bandmate Anand Wilder’s baby girl arrived early which meant the European tour was then to be a few extra months in the making. All the more time to get to know the album for us. Live the band are now a slick audio visual spectacle, with older tunes presented in new light and new ones bold and brilliant, and all the while the live drums are the beating human heart of this futuristic RnB trip.

Listen to the interview below.

Yeasayer: Interview

Thanks for checking out the new Needle Hits The Groove blog, over the next few weeks we’ll be filling this up with our favourite new music, rants, interviews, photos and podcasts of our previous shows from last year. But what is more fitting to kick off a blog than one of the first ever Needle Hits The Groove Interviews? We were lucky enough to catch up with Anand Wilder of Yeasayer before their Dublin date in early 2010 to talk about the new album, the recording process and how he feels about the downloading culture. Enjoy!
