Clap Your Hands Say Yeah(Filed under: Discover New Music)
The indie band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah has sold 17,000 copies of their self-released debut album. They make $8 per copy mailing the CDs to customers themselves (a lot better than the $1 per copy most record companies offer), which amounts to $136,000. Granted they have bills to pay and have to divide up the earnings, but that's not too shabby for a band, considering they also have merchandising and concert income.
You can download a few tracks from their site (check the sidebar) and they're now available on iTunes. They have an odd sound that I have a hard time describing, but I'll say that it's catchy enough that I like it, though the vocals are odd enough that my wife can't stand it. It's kind of like musical noise.
