Description

The Phenomenal Handclap Band - The Phenomenal Handclap Band

The album begins with the meditative strains of the epic "Journey to Serra da Estrela" which erupts into a driving synthesized force, and foreshadows the arrival of "Testimony", in which Jaleel Bunton (TV on the Radio) provides a fiery psychedelic guitar backdrop for Aurelio Valle's (Calla) voodoo incantations. Carol C (Sí Se) lends her considerable vocal talents to the forthcoming single "You'll Disappear", a cosmic disco floor-filler that sets the stage for The Lady Tigra's (L'Trimm) jump-rope rhymes on the soon-to-be classic summer jam, "15 to 20".

Live, The Phenomenal Handclap Band is distilled to an eight-member powerhouse, an eye-popping spectacle that overwhelms the senses. It pulses with a savage rhythm section that provides the ultimate foil for cascading guitars and electrified washes of organ and synthesizers. Their delirious sermonizing whips crowds into a charismatic frenzy. Needless to say, their live shows are more akin to a spiritual church revival than an actual rock show.

Reviews

'With an old-school Sly & The Family Stone funky shuffle multiplied by a Tom Tom Club New Yoik sass, you don't need to do any maths to know this is ace!' - NME

'With their multitudinous influences, blending funk, soul, reggae, dance, hip-hop and Brazilian beat, as well as rock, disco and electro, they encapsulate the spirit of the Brooklyn underground.' - The Sunday Times Culture

'This New York collective puts the five-times table to work over playground funk that splits the difference between the Tom Tom Club, CSS and the Go! Team.' - Guardian

'This collaboration between two NY DJs and a revolving group of members (including some from TV on The Radio and Mooney Suzuki) defies categorization, making it the perfect soundtrack for a Sunday afternoon barbeque, or a Monday morning wake-up call.' – ESQUIRE
