CounterTop Radio — Ep. 8 — Epic Moustaches, Sabremetrics and has CYHSY Gotten Soft?
For this week, Nate and Jett wanted to hash out a fundamental disagreement over the direction of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and their new album, “Hysterical.” Jett stood fast that the band has lost their trademarked whacky madness to their sound while Nate defends his postion that “Hysterical” is the second best of their three albums. On lighter notes, they decided to pick their candidates for best pop culture mustache and delve into the theme of sabremetrics from Brad Pitt’s raved about “Moneyball” and debate on what kind of stats we rely on most in pop culture.
