Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. I got the CD sent to me for my radio show, and it's pretty good. But the over-the-top praise being laid on this band is a bit much.
Essentially, they sound like the Talking Heads. That's not a band thing at all. Talking Heads are among my favorite bands. CYHSY's singer is a dead ringer for David Byrne. But I can only really get into a couple of songs on the new CD.
Tonight the new "buzz band of the moment" will be playing at Sokol Underground. The show is sold out, and has been for a few weeks. This is almost unheard of for Underground shows.
NPR has a Clap Your Hands Say Yeah concert available for streaming on its website if you haven't heard anything by the band. I'll let you know about the show after it's over.
