Clap Your Hands Say Yeah @ BAM in 2009 (more by Natasha Ryan)
CYHSY

"We have a new album coming out! It's called Hysterical, and it will be available on September 20th in the US, and September 12th in the UK, Europe, Japan, and Australia. ALSO, we are re-issuing our 1st album on vinyl. It has been remastered. We always thought the vinyl could sound better. That will be available on June 14th." - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
It was February 2009 when CYHSY played what they thought might be their final show at BAM in Brooklyn. Since then Alec Ounsworth made a go at being a solo artist and the other members have kept busy with various side projects too. Drummer Sean Greenhalgh, who sometimes fronts Guns n Roses cover band Mr. Brownstone, recently produced the Conversion Party EP. Robbie Guertin's band Radical Dads have a new album called Mega Rama out soon. Robbie also plays in Uninhabitable Mansions. And now CYHSY is back.

CLAP YOUR HANDS!
But I feel so lonely
CLAP YOUR HANDS!
But it won't do nothing
CLAP YOUR HANDS!
But I have no money
CLAP YOUR HANDS!
Are you up to something?
CLAP YOUR HANDS!
Where's my milk and honey?
CLAP YOUR HANDS!
But I just look funny
CLAP YOUR HANDS!
I'll just wait awhile

The blogosphere was ablaze back in 2005 because their self-titled album was incredible. I still play it often and it's stood the test of time rather well. How many buzz bands from 2005 can you say that about?

agreed. it's a remarkable album. hope they get over that (big) sophomore slump.

you look like david bowie, but you've got nothing new to show me.

I have to give credit where credit is due and that first album was dope. Hopefully they've found a way to write good music again. That second album was on Law and Order SVU for raping my ears.....

Their second album was still waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than either of Alec's solo albums.

One great album does not win over a jaded, cynical, snarky hipster commenting on BV! They'll have to do better this time around!

remember when all of you went to see CYHSY but walked out after their set before The National came on ??? Because The National was not considered hip at that point?

Posted by Anonymous | May 19, 2011 1:53 PM

I still like this band but, holy shit, that was funny 1:39.
