Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Released on October 11, 2005

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah sold nearly 20,000 copies of its self-titled, self-released debut through the mail--and got nearly as many raves from enthusiastic MP3 bloggers, leading to an entry on Rolling Stone magazine's coveted Hot List. It's easy to feel skeptical, especially of an album that opens with a carnival barker imploring you to "Clap Your Hands!" But anyone that's felt the lure of bands such as the Arcade Fire and Interpol will want to keep listening. In vocalist Alec Ounsworth, this Brooklyn five-piece has found its own Jonathan Richman, a yelping madman that can sing things like "The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth" with a straight face. Meanwhile, the music itself is typically unhinged and under-produced, taking an anything-goes approach that coasts on sheer exuberance and results in moments of profound clarity such as "Let the Cool Goddess Rust Away" and "Upon This Tidal Wave of Young Blood." A promising start but hold the applause. --Aidin Vaziri

My girlfriend got me into this band. I love this album, it's very different to alot of other rock pop bands. It's very joyful happy music, makes you feel like clapping your hands. Love skin on my yellow country teeth and upon this tidal wave, actually i love all the songs. highly recomended
