Clap Your Hands Say Solo Album

2009-07-16 by Dr Dave De Sylvia STAFF | 2 Comments
Alec Ounsworth, frontman of indie rockers Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, will release his debut solo album Mo Beauty on October 20 via Anti-.

Recorded in New Orleans earlier this year, Mo Beauty features the back band of George Porter, Jr. on bass, Stanton Moore on drums, Robert Walter on keys, and Matt Sutton on baritone and pedal-steel guitars. Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) produced.

Ounsworth insists that it's not a New Orleans record, but acknowledges the effect of his surroundings on the final product: "New Orleans informed the spirit of the record, as it should. It's not a 'New Orleans record,' though, because, besides "Holy, Holy, Holy Moses," most of the songs weren't written specifically for New Orleans . . . Any record can be influenced by its location aesthetically, and some are more than others. So it was with this record . . .it is New Orleans, after all."

Tracklist:


1. Modern Girl ( . . . with scissors)
2. Bones in the Grave
3. Holy, Holy, Holy Moses (song for New Orleans)
4. That is not my Home (after Bruegel)
5. Idiots in the Rain
6. South Philadelphia (Drug Days)
7. What Fun.
8. Me and You, Watson
9. Obscene Queen Bee #2
10. When You've No Eyes

Hm, Some Loud Thunder sucked big time, I can't see this being anything too great.
