Recommended Show: Phenomenal Handclap Band @ Southpaw, May 12th FREE
The Phenomenal Handclap Band is a project started by Daniel Collás and Sean Marquand, NYC soul/funk DJ’s who were looking to advance their careers as producers by forming a collective of musician-friends from various genres. The result is a nu-disco sound with elements of pyschedelia, soul, electro, funk and rock. They just signed to Friendly Fire Recordings and will release their debut album this summer. This is definitely my most highly anticipated album of the year. They will play a FREE show, Tuesday May 12th at Southpaw in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Let’s dance.
