Topshelf Records has just announced pre-orders for a new band to the label, Special Explosion. This band is up and coming with tracks that will gather fans of  Sunny Day Real Estate, Bjork, Built to Spill, Death Cab for Cutie, Duster, and even Deerhoof.

I’ll let you fine readers venture down and have a listen given the Topshelf’s track record shows that /100 variants disappear very, very quickly!!

Pressing Information: 100 on White, 150 on Clear, & 250 on Clear w/ Black Smoke

“The band blends Northwest indie rock into a fogged bliss, and it levitates over its listener with daunting earnestness, sort of like if Built to Spill were more like My Bloody Valentine in 1991 (or now).” – Brittnie Fuller of The Stranger
