Boomkat Product Review:
Now at a special price - while stocks last! Propped up by a mighty big pitchfork, New York's Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have a back-story which will warm the hearts of anyone harbouring a serious record-company aversion. Pumping out copies of the eponymous debut from their bathroom, Clap Your Hands attracted the adoring gaze of online-indie stable Pitchfork; a turn of events which led to them becoming America's Arctic Monkey's; ie., they did it on t'internet. Combining a sound that demands comparison with the standard Velvet Underground/Talking Heads axis, Clap Your Hands specialize in making BIG SONGS that tend to all sound the same. Yet whilst that may suggest a bad thing, their pop-accumen and evident passion for the enterprise carry you along on waves of Arcade Fire bombast, Radiohead angst and leftfield flourishes. With highlights including the sweaty 'Let The Cool Goddess Rust Away', 'Details of The War' and it's Lou Reed backbone, and 'Upon This Tidal Wave of Young Blood' (think The Smiths collaborating with The Flaming Lips), Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have ensured the BBC won't be short of accompanying music for the upcoming year... Clap Your Hands Say Maybe.
