In surf music we don’t deduct points for being derivative so I’ll go ahead and confirm what you have already deduced from the album art: there’s a pretty heavy Man or Astro-Man? influence here But who among us thinks that the universe couldn’t use another Project Infinity? That’s basically what’s going on here: not so much the experimental, sciencey side of MOAM but the loud guitars and punk energy.
“Punk energy” is a hard thing to quantify, but the important thing is that I certainly fed off of it. Even when listening on a plane my heel stomp while listening progressed to a restrained head-bang/nod. It’s pretty full-throttle the whole way through and these 8 tracks absolutely whiz by, begging for a repeat listen. It doesn’t resort to lo-fi for its sense of volume -- it’s actually exceptionally well-produced and I’m grateful for that because it really lets the guitars scream and soar.
It’s not entirely unadventurous with a almost reggae beat going on in “Journey to Destruo-9” and theremin here or there, but this is generally a meat-and-potatoes astro-surf affair and I’m happy for that. I love meat and potatoes. They don’t even really slow it down for the ol’ sci-fi audio clip intros.
It’s up on bandcamp and though they’re not listed there I’m pretty sure CDs exist if that’s your preferred medium.
