With what may be my favorite of Mr. Goldin’s compilations, he expounds:
The future is now… we have officially landed with our feet on the ground in 2010. It’s a new year, a new decade, and the time for you to discover your new favorite band has arrived. Allow Exploding In Sound to be your guide, as we are extraordinarily proud to release the brand new, exclusive compilation… GLORIOUS NOISE, now available for FREE DOWNLOAD! Glorious Noise is a true exploration of rock music, with a sound so massive you need to hear it to believe. After an incredible first year of releasing compilations, I can honestly say that I feel this is best release yet. The album features 20 incredible appearances from Traindodge, Mr. Gnome, LIONS, Regular John, Disco Doom, And So I Watch You From Afar, White Belt Yellow Tag, Turbo Fruits, Ceremony, Apteka, Battleme, Postdata, and more!! Scouring the globe… and the internet… for the greatest bands that need to be heard, Glorious Noise is an international affair, with submissions from the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Europe. Great rock music with integrity, intelligence, and intensity is being made worldwide, and Exploding In Sound is dedicated to bringing you the best of the best. The bands comprising the compilation deliver an assorted array of genres including post-rock, grunge, shoegaze, alternative, indie, acoustic, post-punk, and more. As always, the compilation is a 100% FREE digital download, containing artwork, band descriptions, links for further enjoyment, and more. I want to reach out and thank everyone who has helped put this record together, especially the bands, their labels, and management. Without the help, interest, and cooperation of these incredible artists none of this would be possible, because after all this is a glorious celebration of their music and artistic vision. I’d also like to thank the loyal Exploding In Sound fans for your continued support and belief! I am very confident you will love this compilation as much as I do. Don’t forget… support the artists and great music will continue to be made.
Thank you to everyone who promoted the previous releases, and I can only hope you will continue to show your support for the site and our cause.
