Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Alec Ounsworth
3939 N Mississippi Ave.
[BLOG-ROCK SURVIVALISTS] With arena-minded mixing mastermind Dave Fridmann back in the picture, yesterday’s Blog Heroes That Could return with Only Run, an improbable fourth record that leaves the casual listener wondering if this is the sign that Alec Ounsworth and co. have finally overstayed their record. The guy still knows his way around a hook, but the lather of reverb and Flaming Lips drum compression is the exact opposite of what CYHSY should be doing to eek out a few more years of staying power. In other words, bigger is not better for the reigning princes of twee-core.
