A day late

At the risk of losing credibility, I am going to post some music AFTER it was championed on Pitchfork. Specifically, a few tracks by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah -- a band with a bad name, but an interesting sound; somewhere in the realm of The Arcade Fire and Wolf Parade, but hailing from Brooklyn, not Montreal.

Indie Yuppie:
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - In This Home On Ice
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Over and Over Again (Lost and Found)
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Upon This Tidal Wave of Young Blood

Artrocker's goods:
The Chap - Arts Centre
Pete And The Pirates - Saviour

James Murphy's 2001 name-drop:
Section 25 - Dirty Disco

The Planet The - Please Don't Kill Myself

Special thanks to Thomas at Artrocker for not being an ass for once and mailing me some vinyl. Your mom is still cheap.
