Yeasayer have started an online scavenger hunt, which allows fans to stream the new album
prior to the August 21st release date. The links to the songs are hidden across different

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 Aug. 3, at 8pm EST. You’ll have a few days to find, listen, and

6. No Bones
7. Reagan’s Skeleton
8. Demon Road
9. Damaged Goods
10. Folk Hero Schtick
11. Glass of the Microscope
Please remember, it’s fun to share, but more important to support.

That kind of ruins the fun that all the videos have been found, there's no point to do the scavenger hunt now. I didn't know a new Yeasayer album was coming out so that's cool, I like the few songs I've heard so far.
Pretty cool idea. Sucks it has been ruined after like the third day. From what I have heard of the album it is pretty good so far. But I will agree with silentpotato
nothing has really stuck out to me as much as Odd Blood or All Hour Cymbals. Hopefully upon release and a full listen through I could change my mind.
