Feelin' It with Yeasayer
- Words: Jennifer Marston
While Brooklyn's Yeasayer gives props to Pavement and Stephen Malkmus, the four members have no intention of carrying on the apathetic, disaffected tradition of indie rock. This is a band bent on sincerity, not shoegazing. Taking inspiration from gospel and uplifting music around the world, then infusing it with groove krautrock jams, Yeasayer has managed something eclectic yet inclusive–a feat that separates it from the usual art-school riff raff.
As San Francisco photography magazine Hamburger Eyes prepares for its book release party, two of the founders and two contributors reflect on the magazine and collective's history.
