Exploding In Sound is a Brooklyn-based music blog and label, specializing in the often-guitar-heavy, 90s-leaning rock sound that we love so much at Serious Business On BTR. They cut no corners whatsoever on their promise of “delivering good rock music since 2008.” We’ve had a number of EIS-connected bands in for sessions in the past, so we thought we’d make our love real and invited them to do a little takeover for a few weeks!
Palehound, the third and final in our EISxSBonBTR series, is a band from Yonkers, New York. Yes, Yonkers, not Brooklyn. Got it? Originally the solo project of Ellen Kempner (vocals and guitar), the current quartet came together in the Fall of 2013 and proceeded to launch into a whirlwind of nonstop touring and recording. There’s a distinct 90s alternative rock sound here (somewhere along the Helium-Pavement spectrum) akin to the like-minded Krill and Speedy Ortiz, but don’t get hung up on that. This group of beyond-the-boroughs New Yorkers are super charming and making great music for today that you should check out.
Featured song: “Pet Carrot”
