Leading up to two big album releases from BUZZSounds Two Inch Astronaut and Ovlov alongside an impressive two-day joint showcase with Gimme Tinnitus at this weekend’s Northside Festival in Brooklyn, Exploding In Sound Records is bulking up its profile this week with future plans and a new signing to its roster.
The first part is a brand new split that comes by way of the Windy City in My Dad, the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Dave Collis who shares a familiar love for angular, shouty post-hardcore with fellow Chi-town compadres Cap’n Jazz and all things Kinsella. August 6th sees a three-way release of a a brand new single between the project and EIS’ Fat History Month on their label alongside Broken World Media and Ranch Records. For Collis’ half, he offers up “Tom Waits for No Man,” a track that includes Native’s Bobby Markos on bass and keys and results in a full tackle of bombastic riff-splitting and time signature equations.
With Speedy Ortiz recent graduation to Carpark Records, Exploding In Sound has filled the open slot on their roster by signing Brooklyn quintet Porches. Many of the labels’ current offerings are of the loud and noisy variety, but with Porches. addition, they add a softer shade of AM radio pop that’s as romantically-inclined as Ariel Pink that's probably more reliable in action. Their forthcoming full-length Slow Dance in the Cosmos isn't slated to arrive until later this August, but in the meantime, its first listen “Franklin the Flirt” provides an enjoyable first date with the band before the LP brings you back to their place for a late night romp.
You can catch Porches as part of Exploding In Sound and Gimme Tinnitus' unofficial Northside Festival showcases, which take place on Friday, June 13th at the Silent Barn and Saturday, June 14th at Big Snow. The lineups for each day feature a stacked helping of AS BUZZSounds and AS favs such as Speedy Ortiz, SLEEPIES, YVETTE, Life Size Maps, EULA, Pile and Fat History Month as well as rising sounds from the Western Mass scene in Psychic Blood and Young Adults.
