Confessions of a heretic…I went to last week’s Clap Your Hands Say Yeah show to see WATERS as I really had no idea what CYHSY sounded like. I watched the energy of the sold-out crowd explode when the band took the stage but, for whatever reason, the band’s music just wasn’t my cup of tea.
I was trying to get a feel for the band’s music during the first few songs and, for whatever reason, i couldn't shake the jam band comparisons. CYHSY are certainly talented musicians but I have an innate bias against anything that even remotely resembles a jam/Further Fest band.
CYHSY released their third disc. Hysterical. in September and just finished up a series of US and Canadian tour dates. The band is off the road now but are heading to Japan followed by Europe in January.
For anyone who missed the band this time out, they have posted live performances of songs from Hysterical to their website (link below).
