EDITORS’ NOTES

The fourth album from Brooklyn’s Yeasayer cements them as one of the more eclectic and agile bands of the 21st century. Amen & Goodbye blends live instrumentation with electronic textures, full-throated indie rock with the rhythmic kink of R&B, and psychedelic atmospheres with firm, precise musicianship. From the Dark Side–era Pink Floyd chorale of “Daughters of Cain” to the Beck-like “I Am Chemistry” to the melancholic “Uma,” which sounds like a lost John Lennon sketch beamed in from a distant star, Amen & Goodbye plays like the soundtrack to a dystopia just beyond tomorrow.

Hello Goodbye

I enjoyed the first 2 albums very much, Fragrant World not so much. I am Chemistry has me very optomistic.

Just terrible

Finally got through my first listen of the entire effort. It feels like they went with the shotgun approach and the album shows.

Phenomenal

I'm so glad to see another Yeasayer album after these few years, and they've really delivered. I find myself listening to the entire album on repeat.
