Yeasayer, Lydia Ainsworth

When: Fri., Nov. 11, 9 p.m. 2016

Yeasayer’s 2012 LP, the clunky, inconsistent Fragrant World, opened a rift between the kitchen-sink psych-poppers and its label, Secretly Canadian. That breakup facilitated a label change and some necessary self-examination for the band. This year’s Amen & Goodbye, released via Mute, finds Yeasayer handily breathing new life into its sound, eschewing glossy production and cool kid signifiers. It’s a bummer that the record gets a bit too fidgety with genre and drives home Yeasayer’s status as a singles band, occasionally striking gold but usually striking pre-laid pipe. With Lydia Ainsworth. —David Ford Smith
