You’re probably already very aware that this last Saturday was annual Record Store Day, a virtual holiday for music enthusiasts. There were lots of exclusive by everyone’s favorite bands on all different formats. Vinyl was king, with several bands releasing exclusive 7″s and 12″ singles to whet your appetite. Brooklyn’s Yeasayer took the opportunity to release the 12″ single “O.N.E.” from this year’s album Odd Blood backed with an xxxchange remix of the track, an instrumental and, most interesting to me, a demo.
The demo version of O.N.E. isn’t just a crappy quality, 4-tracked version of the song, but an entirely different direction. The song follows a more direct line of sound from their debut All Hour Cymbals, before all the wonky electronic sounds were layered over the song. Give it a listen, and you’ll probably be as fond of it as you were of anything from AHC.
