Exploded View constructs experimental rock songs that permeate the subconscious as much as they groove. On their second full-length, Obey, the transcontinental trio—UK-born, Berlin-based Annika Henderson (Anika), Mexico City-based Hugo Quezada (Robota), and Martin Thulin (Crocodiles)—move from their improvisational post-punk origins to a tighter, grittier approach employing tape loops and overdubbing. "A logical continuation," says SPIN, "with the same beat-poet delivery from Henderson and tense kinetic energy from the instrumentalists, who sound a little like the members of Can jamming in Lee ‘Scratch' Perry’s Black Ark Studios.” It's out on Sacred Bones, home to Zola Jesus, Jenny Hval, and Amen Dunes.Coverage on music sites Official website
