Singers can strive for vocal perfection, but on occasion, it's the imperfections that make a great vocalist iconic and instantly recognizable. Alec Ounsworth embodies that aesthetic; the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah front man sticks out like a sore thumb with his undeniably unique caterwaul. The Pennsylvania kid is the quintessential internet success story; CYHSY was formed on Friendster in the mid aughts, and made popular without traditional record label models through non-traditional web dissemination. Much of Ounsworth's early work exists only on the hard-drives of hardcore fans. After his early (and some might say landmark) success with CYHSY, he became well known for his side work with The Pelican Picnic and indie rock-supergroup Flashy Python. In 2009 he released his first solo album, Mo Beauty, on Anti Records. He stopped by the Guest Apartment to give us a taste of his latest work. - Joe Puglisi
