Pete Astor
Mr Music Fortuna Pop! Records

Article written by Ged M - Jul 12, 2015

This is almost a masterclass in songwriting from an artist who now lectures on music at university. Recorded simply with James Hoare of Veronica Falls, Pete Astor's ‘Mr Music’ is seductively slow with a fine lo-fi swagger. Describing an artist in thrall to his muse (“poor Mr Music, when will he let it go?”) he constructs meaningful lyrics alongside compelling melodies. The B-side ‘Armitage Sharks’ is even softer, a desperate and romantic tale that comprises few instruments but sounds as full as it needs to be. Pete Astor is an elder statesman of indie but his experience and wisdom continue to make him as relevant now as when he started in the 80s.
