A cause for applause.Listen to opening track Some Loud Thunder and you might think Clap Your Hands’ second album will be a retread of the first. But once the rag-tag Beach Boy-ish ambition of Emily Jean Stock and the arpeggiated intricacies of Goodbye To The Mother And The Cove have worked their magic, it’s apparent that they’re a lot more ambitious than that. At their best, on Yankee Go Home and Five Easy Pieces, their sound becomes less indie rock than ecstatic chanting. Oddly reassuring amid all this change is that singer Alec Ounsworth still sounds like David Byrne falling into icy water.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – Some Loud Thunder, released 05 February 07 on Wichita.
