David A. Saylor is a tried-and-true musician, but as his project name Exploding World suggests, he isn't one to stick to standards.
The 31-year-old songwriter has a soft-spoken, wispy voice that peppers mostly acoustic tracks recorded lo-fi style in his apartment. Here and there, he'll throw in weird noises and feedback. These well-placed quirks turn what could be hushed compositions into what Saylor calls "off-kilter songwriting." It certainly makes for a satisfyingly intimate experience in this world of over-the-top, flared-up music.
