Exploding Hearts- Guitar Romantic LP. A quality reissue of the sole studio album from the tragically short-lived Portland power pop band the Exploding Hearts. During their short existence the band left behind a pretty small back catalog, but a massive legacy that all centers around this absolutely classic album. The band drew their influences from early British punk bands like The Undertones, The Jam, The Boys and The Buzzcocks leading a 70s punk + power pop revival in the Seattle / Portland area alongside the The Briefs and The Epoxies. And over time the Exploding Hearts ‘Guitar Romantic’ continues to stand out as one of the best albums released in the early 2000's across these ten flawless tracks. Recommended.
