New York’s The Soft Explosions are another one of those bands that ooze rock and roll cool. Weapons of Love has that subtle, glam groove that locks you in until the end while your ears are bombarded to that psychedelic, fuzzed-out guitar freakout that you know will be amazing live. Man in the Sky and Funky Black Cat remind me a bit of a ramped up T-Rex while Pretty Beat whips out the acoustic for a change of pace.
Very cool stuff and definitely worth a listen. Check out their MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/softexplosions and check them out for yourself.
Here’s the video for Man in the Sky:
