The Astronomers

“If you like your rock and roll filled with more intelligence than the average Blowtard Rock Convention, you need to check out Astronomers. Hailing and wailing out of the city of Charlottesville, VA., Astronomers birth a blind-kind / light-wave / black-heat combination of aquiline guitar lines and proto-post melodicism, fused┬áto the holographic rhythms of a future not yet written in stone, but coming fast, like time travel through a blurred telescope welded to a microscope for the micro to macro effect. Yes. Do it. Please.”
—Dege Legg, The Independent Weekly
