“…equal parts psychedelia, proto-disco, heavy rock ‘n’ roll, ’60s soul and hip-hop – what NPR Music calls “a perfect mix of everything from the past 40 years of popular music.” – NPR ‘All Songs Considered’

“…buzzing, burbling four-on-the-floor dancefloor fillers… a resounding success” – Pitchfork

“The PHB’s sense of style is spot-on…” – Entertainment Weekly

“…musically diverse, incredibly melodic and dance-floor ready. It’s the kind of album that gives cookie-cutter pop the trashing it deserves.” – New York Post

“…an impressive hodge-podge of various accomplished musicians simultaneously channeling the energy of !!!, Tom Tom Club, Can, Cerrone, and Giorgio Moroder in a surreal explosion of sound.” – XLR8R

“It’s hard to describe the all-encompassing sound of thePhenomenal Handclap Band. The New York based collective drapes a layer of electro-disco sheen over ’60s-inspired psychedelic prog-rock, creating danceable freak-out fusion worth its weight in mirror balls.” – Waxpoetics
