Song of the Day: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Details of the War

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's eponymous debut album is one of my favorites of the 2000s, even though I did have to leave it off of this list.  I was hearing "The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth" quite a bit on Indie 103.1, but it took a few listens to finally figure out who I was listening to.  The lead singer's voice can be an acquired taste - to me it sounds like a more whiny David Byrne - but the songs are so good that I grew to really enjoy it.  While "Teeth" is probably still the catchiest song in their oeuvre, this song has really grown on me over the years.
