Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's underdog status made them unlikely DIY heroes, with their David Byrne/Pere Ubu fetish and danceable, hooky alt-rock. "Coming Down" is one of several unlikely highlights on the now-duo's Dave Fridmann-produced Only Run, sandwiched between the queasily beautiful "Blameless" and the anthemic "Little Moments." Lead man Alec Ounsworth's cartoon voice and Sean Greenhalgh's reluctantly disco drumming make for surprisingly soulful moments, like on the title tune, which hints at a direction Radiohead never quite decided to go in.
