CLAP YOUR HANDS SAY YEAH

Hysterical

2011-10-21

Hysterical is the third studio album for “Clap Your Hands Say Yeah” band members Alec Ounsworth, Lee Sargent, Robbie Guertin, Tyler Sargent and Sean Greenhalgh after a hiatus since 2007. Standout tracks: #3 “Misspent Youth” a lyrical journey back to high school daze. #4 “Maniac” driving beat at the forefront and a sound somewhere between “Coldplay” and Rufus Wainright. #10 “Ketamine and Ecstasy” - singer Ounsworth’s reedy voice is reminiscent of David Byrne. #12 “Adam’s Plane” this 7-minute song eventually develops into two melodies on top of each other. At the end it’s chaotic and clever. – Pam VandeKerkhoff FCC violation: track 9
