It’s hard to underplay the previous influence Yeasayer had on late 2000s indie psych-pop. All Hour Cymbals”(2007) and “Odd Blood” (2010) both helped pave the way for the proliferation of ’80s-indebted indie acts that cropped up everywhere in the last five or six years. So on later albums, including their most recent, Amen & Goodbye”, Yeasayer have been vying with a cohort that is, in some ways, of their own design. The competition hasn’t stopped them from releasing inventive, ambling electronic compositions that are spiked by Chris Keating’s distinctively yearning vocals. “Amen & Goodbye” is proof that doubling down on what you’ve already locked in isn’t necessarily a bad idea.
