Alec Ounsworth: 'Mo Beauty', Mo Betta?

14 Oct

I have been known to like bands with singers that have ‘weird voices’. Example: Grizzly Bear, Kings of Leon (first two albums), Sigur Ros, Wolf Parade. But I think Alec Ounsworth of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah takes the cake. The weirdest singing voice cake. Or this cake:

The most delicious cake ever
The most delicious cake

CYHSY’s first album is a treasure and a damn good listen. Example:

Their second album is a black hole of self indulgence and shitty trumpet playing and also creepy chorus-singing children. I pretend like it never happened.

Anyway, good news! I just listened to a few songs off Ounsworth’s first solo album, Mo Beauty, and it sounds pretty good! I am excited! You can listen here. The album drops October 20th.
