Astralingua: Space Blues

Denver, Colorado based space folk duo Astralingua embark on a journey to the stars on their single Space Blues. Composer Joseph Andrew Thompson and vocalist Anne Rose Thompson capture the loneliness and homesickness of the unnamed traveler as he stairs out of his window of his vessel: "did i choose to take the trip? // did the trip choose me? // how much have i sacrificed // for curiosity?". Deryn Cullen (cello) and David Weiss (flute) were on board to lend a hand for this slow moving trip in outer space that turned into nightmarish, soul searching journey.

Van Dammes: Risky Business

Finnish punk rockers Van Dammes are having a blast in their new EP Risky Business. Never mind that one of songs is called I Don’t Like Music Anymore. It's obvious that they still love churning out loud ans fast songs. The Helsinki based band won't win any awards for musical inventiveness, but will receive high grades for entertainment value.

Plenty of fuzz, locked-in vocals sharing, some politics, but above all energy. They never changed their formula - four EPs and counting - and why should they? Play loud and enjoy.
