THE EXPLODING MADONNA
THE EXPLODING MADONNA
SELF-RELEASED

The drugs must be divine in Talahassee, Fl, home of the trippy trio The Exploding Madonna, whose eponymous seven-track offering's influences range from pre-bloated, Peter Gabriel-era Genesis to Dinosaur Jr. at its most eccentric. Developing sonic swirls of elegance and grace that scream for a laser show, tracks like "Beneath Naked Heaven" and the fuzzy drive of "The Stanbury Case" display the outfit's off-kilter wares, while the cheekily titled "Joe Namath's Laboratory" has little to do with the ex-Jet quarterback, yet yields all of the hullabaloo of Broadway Joe's Superbowl victory with a cascading chorus and an all too charming Brit-rock sensibility. Bust out the bong, tune in, and drop a tab to this one boys and girls, and see the colors change before your very eyes.
