The music of Brooklyn's Yeasayer is an eclectic, genre-bending journey into pop, druggy rock, Middle Eastern and African musics, folk, and dub. Vocalist/keyboardist Chris Keating and vocalist/guitarist Anand Wilder were both raised in Baltimore, where they honed their vocal skills in a barbershop quartet and initiated a musical partnership before attending different colleges. Years later, the two relocated to New York and began shaping the project that became Yeasayer. Wilder's cousin, Ira Wolf Tuton, would become a third member of the core group, which regularly featured a roster of guests on its recordings. The band's 2007 debut, All Hour Cymbals, marked the beginning of a legacy of texture-exploring indie rock. ~ Kenyon Hopkin & Marcy Donelson
