Song of the Week: Yeasayer’s spunky “Ambling Alp”

I’m amazed at how quickly Animal Collective have become a major influence. It usually takes bands a generation before they’re cited or imitated, but it seems I’m writing about the latest Animal Collective-inspired band every other month or so (Atlas Sound, Toro Y Moi, Bagheera, Akudama). And Brooklyn-based Yeasayer are another one that wear their experimental, groove-laden AC influences proudly. But the spunky, highly accessible “Ambling Alp,” from the upcoming album Odd Blood, is a real step forward for Yeasayer (coming on the heals of the equally decent “Tightrope” from the Dark Was the Night charity album). Nothing odd about that.
