Hands & Souls

My recent obsession with hand claps doesn't look like it has faded much, so here's another handful of songs to celebrate it. Included are brand new tracks from Beck, Bent, Black Lips and Blockhead. Kris Ellestad and Shout Out Out Out Out supply some claps all the way from Canada, while the local "one man band" Scott H. Biram brings it on home.

Here's an hour of songs that are so funky, you'll need to take a shower.
  • DJ Format & Abdominal - "Fast Food"
  • Lou Donaldson - "It's Your Thing"
  • The Meters - "Chug Chug Chug"
  • Ugly Duckling - "Fresh Mode"
  • Betty Davis - "F.U.N.K."
  • Harry J All Stars - "Liquidator"
  • DJ Shadow & Dan The Automator - "Theme From Don"
  • S.O.U.L. - "S.O.U.L."
  • Eldridge Holmes - "Hump Back"
  • Lee Morgan - "The Sidewinder"
  • Janis Joplin - "Half Moon"
  • Cliff Nobles - "The Horse"
  • Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra - "Who Is This?"
  • Lee Sykes - "Lock"
  • Archie Bell & The Drells - "Tighten Up"
  • King Curtis & Bernard Purdie - "Memphis Soul Stew"

Feist is quickly making 1234 a great handclap experience. Check out the video or the most recent Letterman performance which had an all star handclap ensemble.
