Brooklyn’s Yeasayer has been working and performing on brand new material for their upcoming sophomore release. The first scheduled single Tightrope has become a true fan favorite over the past year and recently was shared on the beautiful charity compilation Dark Was the Night, benefiting the Red Hots Organization aimed towards raising money for AIDS awareness. Crafted with an enticing melody and simply stated, enticing lyrics that question an exact feeling that often rushes through our minds, the song Tightrope still characteristically maintains the unique surprise of Yeasayer and their gypsy-like psychedelic appeal.

Last fall, the band recorded a studio session for Minnesota Public Radio’s the Current, showcasing Tightrope. Like all performances, Yeasayer’s live versions take on a stronger and more abstract experience of their overall music. Please enjoy below!

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
