EDITORS’ NOTES

The fourth album from Brooklyn’s Yeasayer cements them as one of the more eclectic and agile bands of the 21st century. Blending live instrumentation with electronic textures, full-throated indie rock with the rhythmic kink of R&B, and psychedelic atmospheres with firm, precise musicianship, Amen & Goodbye plays like the soundtrack to a dystopia just beyond tomorrow—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.
