The Clap - Hepatitis B-sides


We get some pretty terrible submissions from bands and artists that clearly do not understand what we're into. Luckily, Josh of The Clap is a long-time reader of the blog that knows exactly what we're looking for, and we thank him for the submission. The tracks vary from nonchalant West Coast rhythms to reverb-drenched desert jams to much heartier garage-rocks. There's even some southern twang in there. They wouldn't sound out of place opening for Thee Oh Sees, The Strange Boys, or 75% of the bands we post here. They've only been together for about 6 months, but this demo shows quite a bit of promise, and some of this shit is moolah. They have some pretty cool videos on youtube to accompany a few of these tracks that are worth tracking down as well. I'm in love with the album cover btw.

Whoa! The music is almost as good as the cover, and that's saying a lot. These guys are great.

This sounds awesome! My band played with these guys in Atlanta in a coffee bean warehouse. They were all standing on different piles of coffee bags with projections playing, it was very trippy! I had a demo tape, but this sound the way they did, so good!

The cover looks somewhat inspired by this tattoo:
