Just the utterance of the name Clap Your Hands Say Yeah takes me back to 2005, the year these Brooklynites' DIY debut gave them their five minutes of fame in the burgeoning blogosphere, while simultaneously making Brooklyn an indie-rock hub for the following five years. That's a lot of pressure. They've since released two more albums of arguably lesser quality, while Pitchfork—the tastemakers that initially championed the band as the greatest thing since sliced bread—has all but chewed them up and spit them out. What does it all mean? Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are the poster children for indie rock's new "here today, gone tomorrow" reality. Brooklyn bands typically are more style than substance. And Pitchfork is still trying to tell us what's good and what's bad. Wait, who were we talking about again? MARK LORE
