This Is Our Jam Premieres: Yeasayer, “Glass Of The Microscope”

Yeasayer is about to release its third LP, Fragrant World, on August 21, but before it does, the band has created videos for every track on the record and sprinkled them around the Internet for fans to discover. Created by video artist Yoshi Sodeoka, each one is a unique representation of Yeasayer’s techno-futurist vision (you may remember that we posted one for "Longevity" back in June). For our part in the digital scavenger hunt, Yeasayer has exclusively provided Refinery29 with the final track on the album, “Glass of the Microscope” — a syrupy piece of hypnotic pop with heavy use of warped vocals. Watch below as Sodeoka’s glitchy, surveillance-camera-like imagery creates a trippy analog to the song's dark groove.
The band had this to say about the project:
"We have received message that we are on the verge of embargoed information being leaked through the cracks of the digital universe. Once again an attempt to tell the story before our mouths can spit. In order to have the edge, we have created PSCYVOTV standing for PREEMPTIVE SELF-COMMISSIONED YEASAYER VORSTELLUNG or TRACK VISUALIZER.
Using the talents of Yoshi Sodeoka, we have created a moving visual for every song on our new album FRAGRANT WORLD and have hidden them all over the internet. The visuals will live on the web until Friday at 8 p.m. EDT. You’ll have a few days to find, listen, and most importantly, hear the album from our hands first. At 8 p.m. sharp PSCYVOTV will be removed."
