CYHSY - Some Loud Thunder
Andrew had heard that the new Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (CYHSY for short) record Some Loud Thunder isn’t as strong as their debut record. Fortunately, I don’t read enough mp3 blogs to pick up that kind of chatter. I got an advance copy of the new record (you can too by purchasing it via their website) and I listened to it for the first time this morning.
It’s pretty good. I’ll have to give it a few more listens to know for sure. I agree with Pitchfork that the single, Love Song #7 is a strange choice. It’s my least favorite track on the record.
Here’s my favorite track (give this track time, its takes a while to get going).
