Clap your hands! (But I feel so lonely…)

How can I keep me from moving?
Now I need a change of scenery
Just listen to me I won’t pretend to
Understand the movement of the wind
Or the waves out in the ocean or how
Like the hours I change softly slowly
Plainly blindly oh me oh my!

– Clap Your Hands Say Yeah “Skin of my Yellow Country Teeth

The debut album from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah has been getting a lot of listening to from me. (Want to see?)

Besides being just a really good album full of really good music, it also makes me think of Randy. I can’t say why, exactly. Maybe it’s the blend of David Byrne and Robyn Hitchcock that CYHSY’s lead singer brings to the music. I’ve been thinking of Randy a lot lately. A new wife, a new son, new rooms in the home — I wish I could be there to witness them. Someday, maybe.
