Axxa/Abraxas: Axxa/Abraxas

Ben Asbury is an old soul who fell in love with late Sixties psychedelic rock and analog synths. He has released a string of CD-R's and cassettes before landing a deal with Captured Tracks to handle the debut album of his latest project Axxa/Abraxas.

Based in the musical hotspot of Athens, GA, he put together a band that is well versed in dreamy off-kilter pop repertoire. With whirling keyboards, tugging bass, muffled drums and a twin guitar front line the self-titled debut bubbles and flows gently. Asbury is a piedpiper who has designed his own costume, a patchwork of old things and new.

Axxa/Abraxas is released on Captured Tracks. The limited edition vinyl edition (300 copies) includes the Rta Art Collective synth cassette Desolation (Inner Space). Release date: March 4.
