The Folk Implosion

The Folk Implosion

Biography

With a knack for the tensely melodic, the Folk Implosion create palatable darkness under the guise of entrancing, sampled beats, simple, accessible atmospherics and catchy song hooks. Founded by Lo-Fi enthusiasts Lou Barlow (Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr.) and songwriter John Davis, the Folk Implosion found mainstream acceptance with their song-oriented soundtrack contributions to Larry Clark's 1995 film Kids. Packaged for mass consumption, the Folk Implosion's easy to swallow bits of tension are to hip-hop and Ambient what Taco Bell is to authentic Mexican food -- simple, satisfying, and easy to swallow.
