In 2015 Paper Tiger began work on their 2nd album 'Blast Off', the follow-up to their debut 'Laptop Suntan' on Wah Wah 45s. Having grown in confidence and stature as a live band, they were keen to fully integrate their live sound into the new record. They spent a day at their regular spot in Leeds, ATA Studios, and recorded over 5 hours' worth of ideas, sketches and improvisation.

They ended up with an abundance of material, some of which was incorporated into the sound of 'Blast Off'. However, there was still plenty of music left over to compile a new entry in their live mixtape series. Clocking in at around 30 minutes, 'Sonic Boom Head Zoom 3' retains the SBHZ premise - 100% live, totally improvised and recorded in a single day - but is more adventurous and diverse than ever. There's everything from krautrock to neo-soul in there, non-sequiturs aplenty from MC Raphael Attar and the usual leftfield beat music.

This is a unique release which gives an insight into the creative process, while being compelling and listenable in its own right.
