just the other night i was sitting around a table with some friends discussing bands, new york and the bubble we live in. there's a lot to say on this subject, especially when i've got a few glasses of wine in me, but for now i'm going to keep this brief.
clap your hands say yeah came up and i was all, "they'll never sign to a bigger label...and even though they're blowing up here, there are some people 50 miles away who have no idea who they are, and i'm not sure they ever will."
this wasn't an insult to the band or their talent, i love these guys. i just got the impression that they were of the DIY mentality. but recently, and after this round table conversation i had, i heard that cyhsy was about to sign with 4AD, and quite possibly be opening for the pixies on some upcoming shows. if this is true, congrats boys!
guess that bubble just got bigger.
