Clap Your Hands Say Yeah preceded the Arctic Monkeys in using the power of the internet to get their wares inside peoples earlobes. As the band furiously sent out their debut album from their apartment the order count started to go through the roof. The band were subsequently signed and can now direct their efforts to making the best music possible. A new album called ‘Some Loud Thunder’ is on the way and it will be available for download from their official site in mid January (end of month elsewhere). As a taster there are 2 free mp3’s to be devoured from their website. Initial impressions reveal a cranking down of the scatty energy that so illuminated their debut. Of course the manic side of Alec Ounsworth could be bursting to escape elsewhere but for now we’ll just bask in the seasonal tinged glory of ‘Underwater (You and Me)’. It’ll take a bit to fall for its charms but we wouldn’t have it any other way. ‘Lovesong No. 7’ is the other free track but it’s altogether less pleasing, hopefully it’ll perch more imperiously when slotted within the confines of the new album.
