What I Heard This Morning: Exploding In Sound — Wax Unwound

Dan Goldin of Exploding In Sound has amassed an impressive roster of talent for his latest compilation, Wax Unwound. Who? Black Mountain, Zach Hill, Alain Johannes, The Twilight Singers. The other bands that you may or may not have heard of present no weak link or subpar distraction, no tedious three or four minutes of mediocrity to sit through before you get to something that may or not be good. In all honesty, though I’ve said this before whenever Mr. Goldin has sent along notice of his compilations, this is his most consistently good and interesting selection of bands/songs he's done. Bands like Grandfather, Monotonix, Shapes, &U&I and Shark? offer the more veteran-esque inclusions of the compilation some peer worthy company.

So, how about downloading Mr. Goldin’s twenty-two tracks? It will cost you nothing and you just might learn a thing or two.

Below is all the information from Mr. Goldin himself and be sure to give a look see to his labor of love, Exploding In Sound. It’s always a good read.

(I, though, should still be your favorite).
