Introducing: Loud Clappers

Even though Boston band Loud Clappers first caught my ear due to their connection to the Minneapolis music scene (both of today and its 1980s prime – singer/songwriter Tom Malec played in a pre-Lifter Puller band with Craig Finn of The Hold Steady; also they are huge Replacements fans), it’s the quality of the songs on their new self-titled EP that’s kept me coming back since.  These four tracks remind me of the well-crafted power/pop of post lo-fi prime/pre-temporary break up Guided by Voices (think Isolation Drills/Universal Truths and Cycles era).   Check out the driving “Analog Sunset” below and the rest of the damn thing over at Bandcamp.
