MP3 of the Day #108: The Phenomenal Handclap Band

I really, really dig the Phenomenal Handclap Band. It started with hearing ’15 to 20′ and several other songs live on a Radcliffe/Maconie Radio2 session. The vocals and instrumentation in that little room at the BBC Oxford Road Studios in Manchester were stunning.

And I’ve been lucky to see this band 3 times in a span of less than 2 months in two different cities (New York and Washington) and even sat down with PHB founders Daniel Collás and Sean Marquand, who were exceedingly charming one on one. In case you are one of the poor souls who have yet to see them (they just finished a short tour of the UK), we here at TGTF are gifting you with a live version of ‘Testimony’, one of five tracks from a brand-spanking-new EP entitled ‘Live at Lime with the Phenomenal Handclap Band’. I’mma let you finish listening to it, but yeah, it’s – wait for it – phenomenal.
