MUSIC: Yeasayer Gains Massive Approval at Lupo’s

On Sunday at the world famous Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel, Brooklyn psych-pop band Yeasayer showcased its dynamic rhythms and soul-shaking grooves on stage to the electrified audience. Opening for them were fellow Brooklynites Sinkane for a party-like atmosphere at the historic venue, a great end to the weekend for any live music fanatic. Dim lighting and a hip ambience saturated the place for another spectacular night of live music in The Creative Capital.

Sinkane

New members of former LCD Soundsystem frontman and dance-punk messiah James Murphy's DFA Records label, Sinkane started off the night with their funky ambient post-punk that resonated the styles of TV On The Radio, Herbie Hancock and Massive Attack. "Runnin'", "Lady C'mon", "Mars", "Lovesick" and "Jeeper Creeper" had people mesmerized by the deviating tones and avant-garde tempo of Sinkane's vibrancy. Sinkane currently has its debut album Mars available on its website at www.sinkane.com and at the merch table wherever they play. A great choice of music to dive right into after you plug in your headphones and press play.

Yeasayer

A black shroud cloaked the stage and all you could see were little lights from what looked like cellphones floating around in the darkness. Starting with a robotic voice saying "Good Evening Providence, Rhode Island" over and over again, the cloak dropped and a spectacular light show surrounding Yeasayer was simply staggering. "Blue Paper", "Henrietta", "2080", "Longevity", "O.N.E.", a medley consisting of "Don't Come Close" and "Madder Red", "Demon Road", "Wait For The Summer", "Reagan's Skeleton", and "Ambling Alp" along with some shoutouts to Providence, Pawtucket, Cranston, Kingston and East Providence had the crowd roaring in applause, singing along to every lyric and cutting a rug on the wooden floor. After the initial performance, the crowd kept on clapping and howling at the top of their lungs for more and Yeasayer delivered with "Devil and The Deed" and "Tightrope". Yeasayer currently has had its third album, Fragrant World, out on record store shelves and available anywhere on the Internet since this past August. Definitely an amazing record that you gotta get to make you boogie and dance your nights away.
