Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Accidental internet pioneers, getting experimental, and famous fans

Episode 20,  Aug 22, 2020, 05:00 AM

On this week's show, Alec Ounsworth tells us the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah story - from the inspiration behind that standout name and how they rose to prominence without a record label thanks to their online following, to their experimental sound. 

We ask him what it was like to have A-list stars including David Bowie and the Talking Heads' David Byrne at their shows as they gained a respected reputation - plus, the obstacles met along the journey. 

There's also news about new CYHSY releases!
