Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

When you find a file drifting around this infinitely vast and abysmal pit known as the Internet that is masquerading as a new CYHSY song you almost immediately prepare yourself for the inevitable fake track dissapointment. Those 40 seconds watching it download... then dragging it into iTunes... double-click? RAHHH RAHHH!!! (not sure why I used onomatopoeia with such un-resembling qualities) Okay, phew it is CYHSY....

This track has theoretically been around since the April 15th 2006 when it was recorded live at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC and since then it has been released on a Live Compilation featuring Architecture in Helsinki and Takka Takka.

It's very CYHSY, melodically, tone wise and vocally (which is erratic as usual and as some critics agree reminiscent of David Byrne, I prefer a Bobcat Goldthwait comparison). It should be interesting to see how the new album fares when it will evidently be subject to a large amount of pre-hype compared to their first release.

That video that that guy made and then the band didn't want to use the video so it just kept floating around the Internet and then YouTube came along and now everyone can watch it and pretend that it is in fact the official music video for the song.
