After finishing the songs that became their self-titled debut LP for Sacred Bones,
Exploded View decided to go back into the studio and record some more. Mixed
in with some of the outtakes of the first record, such as "Mirror of the Madman,"
the songs on Summer Came Early signal a step forward for the band, revealing
more clarity and focus than the first, yet retaining a certain messy experimentalism
that gives them the freedom they crave.
