Astronauts
Four Songs Lo Recordings download only

‘Four Songs’ are four songs that didn’t make the team for Astronauts’ Hollow Ponds album but which Dan Carney though were still worth airing. And he was right. Nothing stands out quite like the magnificent ‘Skydive’ but the EP is a great album companion with four different faces. 'Only Son’ is Bowie space-pop, with growling guitars and a motorik beat creating a huge pop rush; ‘Lion Tamer’ is throbbing experimental psych-pop that builds in waves until it dashes itself to destruction; 'Think On (2003)’ is folky, introspective and haunting; and the instrumental ‘Death From The Stars’ is a slow comedown of softly caressed piano and generalised electronic moaning. It’s a fine foursome with a distinctively dreamy sound that deserves your attention.
