Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

It seems purposely designed to scare people off so the band would be artificially limited in fan base and therefore keep their indie cred. The rest of the songs are pretty catchy and good, though the singer’s voice takes some getting used to as it’s not really what you might call “singing” much of the time – more like yelping. I would call them a modern Talking Heads stylistically.

Definitely this band is very painfully cool though – they take themselves a little too seriously for me to become much of a fan.
