Yeasayer – Tightrope

yeasayerSo as many of you may know, a huge new compilation disc called Dark Was the Night was recently released by the 4AD record label and Yeasayer laid down this track for it.  We’ve loved ‘Tightrope” since we first saw it on The Current and then again on La Blogotheque so we were excited to hear that the band was giving the jam a proper recording session.  But then bummer, the Dark Was the Night version just didn’t compare to the live tracks.  Maybe the band felt the same way and maybe that’s why they played/filmed yet another version of the song for the fine folks at 4AD (or maybe they can’t make up their damn mind).  This new version brings in the banjo with some melodica and can be heard/seen over on youtube.  It’s way cooler than this studio version.
