Upon This Tidal Wave of Young Talent

I have wanted to post some Clap Your Hands Say Yeah for some time now, and this seems as good a time as any. The band is Alec Ounsworth, Lee Sargent, Robbie Guertin, Tyler Sargent, and Sean Greenhalgh. The songs posted here are from their self-titled debut album.

This band is hard to describe. They would slide into the column of "alternative rock," but really with all of these amazing new original bands, we will soon have to abolish the category system. My first reaction to CYHSY was that Ounsworth had an amazing voice. I don't mean "good" amazing... I guess the closest comparison I can find is with David Byrne from the Talking Heads. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah just makes me feel good inside and that is really the most genuine compliment I could tell any band. Enjoy!
