On My Radar: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Dark Mean, Hooded Fang

clap your hands say yeah

NXNE starts in a couple hours and I haven’t posted my picks yet.  They are on the way.  Hang tight.  In the meantime, check these out.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah want you to have their first single called “Same Mistake”, off their third album Hysterical. Look for that John Congleton produced album September 20th in the US, and September 12th in the UK, Europe, Japan, and Australia.


Hamilton band Dark Mean have just released their self-titled full-length album and here’s another track off the record.

Download: “Smoke Lake“.


While checking the Broken Speaker today, I saw they had posted new songs from Toronto’s Hooded Fang.  Head there to channel that 60s beach vibe in “Den Of Love” and “ESP”.


Thought I’d end this post with a video, here’s UK artist Chad Valley (aka Hugo Manuel) with his first single “Now That I’m Real (How Does It Feel?)” off his EP, Equatorial Ultravox, which will be released June 21 on experimental pop label, Cascine.
