Clap Your Hands Say Yeah “Statues”

In a recent post on the CYHSY website/MySpace the bands tells us that:

Tonight we will play on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. We are going to play a new song, which is called “Statues.” It’s a song that we might work on some more in the future. After we play it we will put a demo of it up on our website so that you can download it. The show airs at 12:30 AM Eastern Time. Go to WWW.CLAPYOURHANDSSAYYEAH.COM after to listen to a recorded version of “Statues.”

MP3: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah “Statues” (Demo/320kbps)

So my 1st impression is: “Statues” is decent and contains some of the known and loved CYHSY lo-fi bliss, but could probably benefit from “some more [work] in the future.” I think after being reworked it could probably fit nicely into the context of a new CYHSY LP, but won’t likely stand on it’s own as a single.

There isn’t a video posted of their performance yet (I actually don’t even know if it aired yet) but I’ll be sure to add the video if I come across it.

UPDATE: Here’s the video:

Notice how I actually made it through an entire story without making a joke?  I didn’t even poke fun at statues for not being able to clap.
