Yeasayer is a psychedelic pop-rock band out of Brooklyn, New York. Frontman Chris Keating tells a story about his grandparents’ ashes—he thinks that he’s going to Ireland for a simple burial, but his father has much more planned.
All the music in this piece was by Yeasayer, with the exception of “The Gold Ring Jig,” by Jordi Savall. They just came out with a new album called “Fragrant World.” Listen to it. It is so, so good.
