Alec Ounsworth of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (headlining Saturday night at XPo Fest) talks with Tri-State Indie - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart

This Saturday night’s headliners at the WXPN XPoNential Music Festival are Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. The band is releasing a new album called Hysterical in September, and XPN’s music fest is the first date of a tour that will bring them back to Philly on September 21st at Union Transfer. As a preview to this weekend’s show, Clap Your Hands lead singer Alec Ounsworth was interviewed by the folks at Tri-State Indie. Talking about the recording process for the new album, Ounsworth had this to say:

For this record we definitely made a conscious effort to be collectively involved from the very beginning maybe more than the other ones in the past. I had the tendency to leave the guys in the dark to a certain degree for the first couple records. For this one we were building the songs together as a group and that made sense for each individual in the project. There is a reason why each song is on this upcoming record. From working with John [Congleton] we established a certain approach sonically that remained consistent which was different then our first two releases. I think it had to do with developing certain maturity with how to approach the process and a respect for the occupation.
