-valis Pick of the Week
Hail Voyagers!!! Our Pick this week comes from Australia: The Love Explosion! Their new album is entitled Mood Processor and is available as a free download at their blog.
I say "their new album" but it's largely the work of one man: Tom C., of Sydney, Australia. No stranger to this blog, the band particpated in the Solstice compilation, Vol. 3, back in 2010, ans his prior album made our Best Of list in 2011. This album shows quite a lot of depth. Range, too. He is unabashed about what bands and/or listening habits are affecting the music he's itching to create. Simple stuff without being facile. Creative, sometimes crunchy, the tracks are in able hands and mind with Tom. I think your mind may like it as much as I do. Certainly worth a try.
You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every other Thursday from 11pm to 1 am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
Adding the Pick of the Week to their show is Dogs Got A Bone out of Edinburgh, Scotland, from 10pm to midnight, Mondays, U.K. time, (adjust accordingly,) on Belter Radio. Thanks Col Chant!
