Do you want a free song by Yeasayer?
Q: What is Yeasayer?
A: A band from Brooklyn self described as, "Enya with bounce"
Two months ago my weekly concert alert e-mail from Jam Productions included a link to download "Ambling Alp" by Yeasayer. A few weeks after that the same song was featured on NPR's All Songs Considered. It's also being given away for free on multiple places on the Web as well as on Yeasayer's MySpace page. Therefore, I don't feel guilty copying the link here as well.

I liked that song, and the next song I discovered by them "Tightrope" was even better:
Right around this time I received an iTunes gift card and didn't hesitate long to buy their first album All Hour Cymbals. On Tuesday February 9, the bands latest album Odd Blood "drops" for purchase wherever you normally purchase music. In a little over two months from now, they'll have a Metro show. I hope to be there, Thursday April 29.
Here is the official video for "Ambling Alp" by Yeasayer.
IMPORTANT TO NOTE: the official video is Not Safe For Work
I'd also like to add that this video is, by far, the oddest video I have ever posted. It's extremely... weird... Don't let the visual distract you too much from the track's quality.
