After the staggering success of their self-released, eponymous first record in 2005, Brooklyn-based band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are releasing the follow up, “Some Loud Thunder,” on Jan. 30 (although in-the-know fans have been able to download the record from the band’s Web site since Jan. 16.)
A rollicking mix of rock, folky pop and sing-along anthems — specifically the standout “Satan Says Dance” — “Some Loud Thunder” has energy to spare, but isn’t shy on wit either.
It’s a rarity for an independent band to make it this big on its own, but with a devoted fan base, this quintet shows no signs of slowing down. And with the release of this new, 12-song disc, you’ll not only be clapping your hands, but stomping your feet, singing along and saying “Yeah.”
“Some Loud Thunder” by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah will be released on Jan. 30. For information visit www.clapyourhandssay....
