Last night Yeasayer returned to television with the new song “Devil And The Deed,” an anxious cut of backbeat new wave with Anand Wilder out front, fog by their ankles, and synths and falsetto through the hook. The band’s on tour right now still supporting Odd Blood, so while it’s not quite time to get excited about a new LP, it is good to know they’re spotlighting new material — in addition to “Devil,” Yeasayer performed two more previously unreleased songs (one titled “Henrietta”) at their show later in the evening at L.A.’s Music Box with tour support Smith Westerns. Photographer Graeme Flegenheimer was there — his photos are above, the Conan performance is below. Go both ways.

  1. I’d like this better if I could actually hear the vocals other than the chorus..

  2. I dig it! keep doing acid guys!

  3. Great track, man they’ve gone through a bit of a line-up change since I saw them a few years ago. I love how Chris Keating and Anand Wilder can swap off vocals on songs with no loss in excellence.

  4. new track Henrietta from Fillmore show is amazing –
