Album Review

Asteroid #4, The – “Hail to The Clear Figurines” – [Committee to Keep Music Evil, The]

surferrosa   10/31/2011   A Library, CD

Here is the 6th release by Asteroid #4, a band from Philadelphia currently signed on to Anton Newcombe’s record label “The committee to keep music evil”. This music sounds heavily influenced by bands such as R.E.M, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Spacemen 3. The music here is shoe-gazey, space-pop with a touch of psych. With plenty of reverb and tremolo, this album has a floaty, elated, yet rock driven sound. It is sweet and pleasant with a nice dose of 60s-esque fuzz freakout. This album is very approachable. Not too much dissonance here, mostly pleasant sounds with a bit of psychedelia. – Surfer Rosa
