Since the last set of hand clap-filled tunes was such an overwhelmingly huge success, I had to come back for more. Put your palms to the test!
Please follow the links to support these artists.
The Beatles recorded their White Album only after they practiced it a few times in the studio, acoustic style. Listen to them practice "Revolution." I would assume that Lennon is on the guitar here, with McCartney handling the hand percussion.
Devendra Banhart and Jana Hunter both come from Houston, and both are associated with "New Weird America." Their music tends to consist of fairly simple guitar melodies with minimal other instrumentation, and in 2005 they teamed up to put out a split LP with five songs from each of them. This song is a perfect fit for this theme...
Spoon. It will be the best thing you've done for yourself all day. This is also from the free EP that you'll get with the purchase of Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. Now get to it already.
Gorillaz b-side, err.....G-side. I really like the guitar riffage on the end of this one. Dear Gorillaz: Please make more music.
Stars are really burning up the blogs. Totally en fuego. In Our Bedroom After The War is their most confident and compelling work to date – an album that showcases the seven years of experience they share as a band. It was recorded at the Warehouse Studios in Vancouver, BC and mixed by Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, The Shins, Morrissey). Check out this groovy Junior Boys remix from Stars' 2004 album...
LCD Soundsystem released in 2006. Get more info on Introns right here. Did I mention how pumped I am that LCD are playing ACL? I think I did. This song is certifiably the jam.
Hot Chip's 2004 EP Down With Prince. Clapping, guitar solos, and chocolate. Seriously, what else do you need?
Feel free to fill me in on any more songs like this that I may not be familiar with, and let me know what you think of this set.
