This week's SongSpot is called 'Ride the World Around the Sun' by the Hoboken, NJ based Tadpoles. It's from their second album Far Out, which received a four-star review in Rolling Stone.
The Tadpoles formed during the early '90s. Since then, the psychedelically-influenced band has evolved into a steady lineup of vocalist and guitarist Todd Parker, guitarist and vocalist Nick Kramer, bassist David Max, and drummer Adam Boyette. The band has founded its own record label, Bakery Records, to self release three studio albums produced by former Shimmy-Disc founder Kramer as well as an EP and live album.
A well-received appearance at the 1997 Terrastock Festival sponsored by the U.K. magazine Ptolemaic Terrascope has consolidated a national following for the band.
