Artist: Astral (@)
Title: Transmitter
Format: CD EP
Label: Vibraphone Records (@)
Rated: *****
"Transmitter" is an engaging work that uses dreampop with postpunk reminiscences to position the listener in a somehow hypnotic calm. Their debut album called "Orchids" was a strange and compelling blend of Cure-influenced shoegaze/dreampop, now with this new Ep they shifted to a less distorted style with influences ranging from late Chameleons UK or early For Against. It's a grower for sure - and it's amazing how much perspective I've gained in the past six months listening to it because now I'm totally in love with "Yesterday's Calling". Astral deserve to be
listened to.
