Remixes by The Phenomenal Handclap Band
Released: Nov 2010
Label: Friendly Fire Recordings
On their self-titled debut, New York's eight-person-strong Phenomenal Handclap Band translated the stage-crowding antics of acts like the Arcade Fire into a funk-disco fusion somewhere between DFA and Bonnaroo; now a diverse group of remixers turns that album's loose grooves into streamlined house, nu-disco and electropop reworks. The best, like T.H. White's and Munk's, preserve the band's airy psychedelia while carving out crisp electronic arrangements. Like most such projects, it's a mixed bag, but there's plenty here to fill out your Friday-night house-party playlist.
