Free Music Sunday: The Phenomenal Handclap Band – Testimony

According to their record label, the Phenomenal Handclap Band “blends psychedelic space disco & smooth 60s-style soul perfectly with early hip hop, and moody, synth-soaked hooks.”  In other words, they’re not quite like anything you’ve ever heard before.  Part of their whirlwind styling comes from the various guest artists who appear on their debut album.  Contributions come from, among others, TV on the Radio, The Dap Kings and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.

PHB’s new album is one that I’ve had in the mix for the last month or so and it’s a fine accompaniment to your late summer festivities.  An early release track from the album is “Testimony,” a smooth track that plows forward like a Deep Purple guitar riff.  Go get Testimony from Brooklyn Vegan.
