Yeasayer are poised to make your Top 10 list

Provided that TV on the Radio and Animal Collective don't spring any unexpected surprises on us, Yeasayer are likely to soak up much of 2010's allotment of Brooklyn-band blog buzz: Like Dear Science and Merriweather Post Pavilion before it, Odd Blood—Yeasayer's new sophomore disc, due out Tuesday on Secretly Canadian—is an undeniably eccentric art-rock record with plenty of room for big choruses, heartfelt vocals, and chewy psych-pop grooves; expect "Ambling Alp," the album's first "single," to appear on next year's Pazz & Jop. With well-connected local lady Shannon Funchess's goth-dance outfit Light Asylum.
