Why is Brooklyn the fertile crescent of amazing bands?
The Phenomenal Handclap Band is a massive crew that brings psychedelia back in the same vein as The School of Seven Bells, however the Band is infinitely more organic than the Bells. Check out their self-titled debut album, recently released on Tummy Touch (UK). Other standout tracks are “All of the Above” and “15-20″. Since I love 15 to 20 so much, here’s the video. I think it came out last week.
The “You’ll Disappear” remix below is from the Horse Meat Disco boys, who are really focusing on their re-edit/remix game. Their recent comp on Strut is great, as in not too deep and not too cheesy, and I believe they are furiously touring the globe as we speak. Go get em tigers.
