Chances are you've heard TPHB's CSS-before-they-lost-it funk nugget '15-20' already. It's Zane Lowe's Scorchingly Hottest Record Of The Entire Universe This Minute, it's spreading across the blogs faster than (yes, I am going to use this metaphor) swine flu and once it has infiltrated your brain it stays there rolling around like that passed-out guy at the party no-one can get rid of. If not, go infect yourself here.
The Phenomenal Handclap Band aren't some remedial junior high afterschool project, they're actually two New York DJs and a loose collective of over 20 collaborators, including members of TVOTR, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and The Mooney Suzuki.
This is the other A-side to the single (out May 4 on Tummy Touch), a slower, steamier soul-funk escapade perfect for these hazy pre-summer nights.
