Review: Baked – II

Is our current mindframe geared towards EPs and singles, not albums? Has our attention span been decimated by our bloody quest for likes, hearts, retweets, and emoji reactions? It’s a long discussion, man, and I wouldnae wish to bore you without inviting over for a fine brew. Today we have Baked on tap. Another blend from Casa de Exploding in Sound Records, this refreshing drink, … Continue reading Review: Baked – II

Review: Leapling – Suspended Animation

Usually, the fine music peddled by Exploding in Sounds swerves between pot-infused rock (Pile), post-hardcore (Two Inch Astronaut) and poetry-fuelled rock & ravings (Kal Marks). The closest you get to folk is Palehound. Leapling manages to infiltrate EiS HQ with the pleasing sounds of 70s folk pop, with fine tuning courtesy of chamber pop. That’s an impressive list of label mates and all, but what is Suspended Animation sound like? The sophomore album by Leapling displays … Continue reading Review: Leapling – Suspended Animation

Video: Palehound – Cushioned Caging

  Dry Food is a gorgeous bay window into the world of Palehound, a folk rock outfit. ‘Cushioned Caging’ is one of the fiercest tracks from this album and now it has a video, directed by teen students from Real to Reel Filmschool and Raw Art Works.  The topsy turvy nature of ‘Cushioned Caging’ and its ever changing moods comes across perfectly on the video. One foot in the land of … Continue reading Video: Palehound – Cushioned Caging

Stream: Stove – Stupidest

  Once the Rhodes Colossus that was Ovlov collapsed into the sea, news that Steve Hartlett had enough material for another album were well known.

Now, ‘Stupidest’ gets a video, just … Continue reading Stream: Stove – Stupidest

Stream: Leapling – Hey Sister

Many fantastic cocktails made by the fine bands in Exploding in Sound Records have been served this year. 2 Inch Astronaut, akin to an LSD spiked fruit punch. Kal Marks, a ginger beer with a whiskey chaser, still burning your throat. Washer, that hair of the dog michelada you drink to face back reality. Palehound , finally getting a release in the UK, with their substantial punch, akin to a Long … Continue reading Stream: Leapling – Hey Sister

Stream: Stove – Wet Food

Ovlov is late. Actually, you could say they are the late band Ovlov. It was a fun ride, but now the cat’s out, milk’s been cancelled and the only forward address they left was the name Stove.  Stove is the Tom Baker of Ovlov’s Jon Pertwee. Still a dashing form of rancorous slacker rock, Stove has Steve Harlett becoming a one man band, keeping the impetus of his former self, … Continue reading Stream: Stove – Wet Food
