Listen: Yeasayer – Fragrant World (Full Album Stream)

As the Summer progressed it became evident as more albums were announced that August, September, and October would be three of the most impressive months for new albums in recent years.

For me to list them all would take too much time, but close to the top of this list is Yeasayer‘s highly-anticipated third album Fragrant World, an album with a lot of ground to cover if it’s to match the critical acclaim of its predecessor Odd Blood.

Early reviews of the album seem to suggest that they’re onto something with tracks such as “Longevity” and “Henrietta” generating a good amount of buzz, and showing that they haven’t lost their experimental electronic quirk. I’m making my way through my first listen of it now and where Odd Blood had some huge tracks that could propel the band onto mainstream radio, Fragrant World seems to have replaced the “hits” with more in-depth songs that you can lose yourself in for weeks.

Fragrant World is released on August 21st via Secretly Canadian, and thanks to NPR you can listen to it in full below, nine days before it’s released.
