I knew of CYHSY because of the small buzz surrounding this record but I never paid much attention to it until my friend gave it to me to listen to. Well... let's just say I am completely blown away. I can definitely understand the comparisons to The Arcade Fire and The Talking Heads. I will add The Tragically Hip to that list as well.
If you are looking for the Funeral of 2005 then look no further than Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. It is musically similar and at the same time brighter and the lyrics also paint a much happier and carefree world. Without listing all the songs, the stand out tracks are LET THE COOL GOODNESS RUST AWAY, THE SKIN OF MY YELLOW COUNTRY TEETH, IS THIS LOVE, IN THIS HOME ON ICE, and UPON THIS TIDAL WAVE OF YOUNG BLOOD.
