Anand Wilder of Yeasayer on being from Baltimore but making a name in New York

Yeasayer (due tonight with Hush, Hush and Smith Westerns at the Ogden Theatre) was started by three guys from Baltimore, who each moved to New York separately before starting the band. During its four-year existence, the trio has developed an experimental pop sound that is more akin to quirky synth-pop bands of the mid-'80s than a straight ahead rock outfit.
