Exploded View, the dark-n-dubby group featuring Anika and Mexico City-based musicians Hugo Quezada (Robota) and Martin Thulin (Crocodiles), are back with their second album, Obey, which will be out September 28 via Sacred Bones. Unlike their debut which was recorded live, Obey takes them into the studio, while making room for the unexpected. The first single is the mysterious and claustrophobically groovy "Raven Raven." The band say of it, “Ever felt like someone is watching your every move? Your every twitch, your every sneeze? Stare back into the face of observation. Never give in to external control. You can break this.” Listen below.

You can catch Exploded View on tour this fall, including a NYC show at Rough Trade on November 8. Tickets for that show go on AmEx presale at noon and the public on-sale begins Friday, June 29 at noon. All dates are listed below.
