Yeasayer (pronounced “yay-sayer”) takes place in the future, somewhere in the Middle East where citizens wear turquoise robes, live in crystal towers, and overindulge on Peter Gabriel albums. The band members are Anand Wilder, Chris Keating, Ira Wolf Tuton, and Luke Fasano. They describe their music as “Middle Eastern-psych-snap-gospel”. The band first came to national attention after appearing at the SXSW festival in early 2007.
note: 2080 is my favorite song and sung best here.

In the late 50s, a number of Fiat 600s were shipped to the Italian design house Ghia for conversion into the Jolly. They featured wicker seats, had the option of a fringed top to block the Mediterranean sun, and could accomplish speeds of 59 mph while achieving gas mileage of 52 mpg—the Jolly was the ultimate shore dingy. With a cost of nearly double that of a 600 model [$1760.00 compared to $998.00], the rich and famous such as Aristotle Onassis, Yul Brynner and Patrick McGoohan would load them onto their yachts for use as beach buggies. The darling Jollys were made in a very limited production and it's believed fewer than 100 exist today. It's a party on wheels!

turmoil.. everything is a bit darker all around. Dark times call for dark coats. That was the impression the Milan designers gave after four days of runway shows in which the particularities of individual labels got lost in a continuous loop of gloom.
