Yeasayer - "Swallowing the Decibels" / "Phoenix Wind"
Record Store Day is a very conflicted time for me. It combines my love of records with my general dislike of stores. So, as in years past, I did not go stand in line for any of the exciting limited-edition releases. Instead, I bought some non-limited-edition vinyl online and mostly downloaded the Record Store Day stuff. My conscience is okay with this arrangement.
Yeasayer's End Blood seems like one of the better 7" releases out there, two leftover tracks from 2010's Odd Blood that definitely sound good enough to make anyone's album. I like "Swallowing the Decibels" a little bit better, but you definitely can't go wrong with either one.
