The Shaky Hands, 'The Shaky Hands' (Holocene)

The Shaky Hands
Critical Mass
Label: Holocene

by Josh Modell

This Portland band's debut should satisfy those flummoxed and/or disappointed by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's sophomore slumper. Both groups capture early R.E.M.'s breezy jangle and give it a twisted sideways glance, but the Shaky Hands reduce the bark and play up the loose-limbed folk vibe, refusing to get bogged down in murky layers or sonic experiments. Refreshingly uncluttered tunes like "The Sleepless" and "We Will Rise" bring a relaxed, back-porch quality to typically uptight indie rock.
