Ep 47 - Song 3: "A Dark Gift" by Jordan Mayland and The Thermal Detonators



"Known as having his hand in many projects, Jordan has put out three "solo" albums playing most instruments on every track. The newest album "This Mess" is the first full band Thermal Detonators album and out now!"
- from their BandCamp page

"Jordan Mayland and Thermal Detonators was the name Jordan chose for his original solo EP debut. After years of playing music from that EP solo the band has finally come to add new color and life into old songs and help create a new atmosphere of multiple live layers, sing-alongs, and new theatrical elements."
- from their Facebook page

"The soul-stirring Ames/Des Moines pop unit Jordan Mayland & the Thermal Detonators delivers a tantalizingly dark treat with its generous new record This Mess, their first LP from the hand-made Nova Labs label.

"Mayland is a veteran of some of Iowa’s best bands of the past two decades, starting with the beloved early 2000s (local) hitmakers Keepers of the Carpet and continuing through today with acts like Volcano Boys and TIRES. The Thermal Detonators are Dave Atchison, Paul Hertz, Sean Huston, Claire Kruesel and Frank McBroom — a seasoned outfit that blends voices and diverse instrumentation into a rich sound that feels gracious, even compassionate. You can hear the band listening."
