Ok, I have only listened to this song once but already I am in love. So letâ€™s get to know it together. First, this Sioux Falls band has a name that fits in with the current fancy for elongated monikors. Weâ€™ve already had Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! and You Say Party! We Say Die! so perhaps We All Have Hooks For Hands doesnâ€™t so daft after all. This is more a collective than a band since at full throttle it takes 9 rowers to sail the good (pirate) ship Hooks For Hands. â€˜Jumpin’ Jean-Lucâ€™ has a deliciously awkward charm and like most of the bands work it takes the Go! Teamâ€™s unrivalled energy, the Boy Least Likely To’s knowing innocence and mixes it with Animal Collectiveâ€™s furtive melodies. The result is a dotey mess with the irregular timing of falling sweat beads from the ceiling of an over populated indie disco. So as a precaution while listening it may be better to keep your mouth closed in case the rabid noise sets off a chain of events that results in slightly embarrassing foot movements. Looks like Los Campesinos! have some transatlantic competition. KD
