I dig them. The JAMC comparisons were obvious and inevitable, but whatever, I think they sound pretty good.

They own this space in Brooklyn that always throws really fun shows for cheap (saw AIDS Wolf, HEALTH and Ruins awhile back). I think they make their pedals there too but they've got my respect for the space.

Olvier also makes pedals for u2 and some other large then life shitbands. But still his band is quit one of the best to enter the indieworld in the last years.

And their new album is even better.

a few good tracks on the first album, but what's good in them is their use of musical influence... nothing from the new album has stuck with me yet

someone mentioned that their appeal will be short-lived, which is simply wrong. shoegaze and noise rock have a pretty dedicated following, and APTBS's interpretations of the genre is convincing/authentic enough for plenty of them.

whatever though, Ceremony will always be ahead of APTBS, and both bands may have head their last chariot ride in Skywave

Screen Vinyl Image may have all three bands topped

seriously, u2 uses them? i'd think olly doesn't make them for u2, but makes them for (and as) Death By Audio, and that u2 happens to buy dba.

those pedals---i'm thinking of the fuzz gun---are win

I really dig them. They're kinda JAMC copycats but atleast they're doing it better than, oh let's say, cunt-shit Glasvegas.
I haven't heard the entire album yet but I do enjoy the singles. "I know I'll see you" and "To Fix the Gash in your Head" both sound a lot like JAMC's "In a Hole" but that's ok the rest of the album isn't a complete JAMC knock-off. Sadly enough I haven't had the chance to see them perform live yet but I've been told by some friends, who really love the album by the way, that it was a huge dissapointment.

That said, I like them. To me they sound like what JAMC should have done after Psychocandy.

Live it's doable without earplugs, but if you like some noise in your head for the next 4 days do it.

I've been playing Exploding Head a lot. I hope I dont play it too much. It doesnt strike me as something that I'll find a lot of interest in after their initial tangle with my dopamine. Hope I'm wrong.

I really like the self-titled. Exploding Head is quite okay, but not at all as good. I like the rawer sound on the first record a lot more, my head doesn't explode by the new one at all. It needs more noise.

I like the new record quite a bit. A bit more "Structured" than self-titled, but I don't know which one I prefer just yet.

the lengths this band will go to not come up with a single original idea is depressing.

I must find their other albums... I really do love exploding heads, and if thats supposed to be their weakest, then I'm just that much more excited.
