In a digitally distorted blaze of electro-house glitch, local party starter Panic Bomber, a.k.a. Richard Haig, has spent the last year going supernova.
First came his six-track EP effort, Calling in Threats, a December 2008 release loaded with crunchy club killers like "Miami Stunnaz" and "Disillusionment." (Cop it at PanicBomber.com or Bandcamp.) Next, Bomber won New Times top honors as Best New Electronica Artist of 2009 while also scoring media play in France, the faraway land where blog house was born. And now, almost exactly twelve months since his debut, the man with a name from a video game is giving birth to his first full-length, Getting on My Mind.
