Favourite Song: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah 'Coming Down'

I knew it. I knew that this album would follow me around this year and here I am, obsessed with this song that is so typical and so unusual for CYHSY and that is so beautiful and exciting like a shot of adrenaline and at the same time feels so centered and assuring like you’re standing on a mountain and see a thunderstorm below you unfurling and ripping worlds apart. 47 more words

Favourite Songs

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

The first time I heard about Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, I really didn’t think I would like them. A friend had bought the CD, a decision based mostly on their ‘indie’ cred, as he had heard the album was self-recorded, self-produced, and self-released. 448 more words


Clap Your Hands Say Yeah: Only Run

The thing I like about CYHSY is that after all this time in the spotlight they still appear to approach the music in the same fun arts and crafts way they always have. 42 more words

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Live at Mississippi Studios

Things had changed a bit since the last time Clap Your Hands Say Yeah visited Portland on an official tour–the band’s lineup had changed significantly, with only frontman Alec Ounsworth and drummer Sean Greenhalgh remaining from the original version.   597 more words


The Clap Your Hands Say Yeah Dilemma

The story of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah is one we’ve seen countless times before, and just as unfair as with many other cases–band debuts with huge buzz and overnight success, becoming a shorthand for the Hot New Thing, difficult followup alienates the tastemakers and the band’s profile begins to dwindle, band now exists in shadow of former glory and is now shorthand for “hey, weren’t we crazy back in ?”  Granted, since we’re talking about indie rock bands in the new millennium, the full scale of their trajectory is of a much smaller scale than previous decades, but it’s a familiar pattern nonetheless.   1,062 more words
