9/10 Mike Staff review, 12 June 2013

Not enough people know this but Man...or Astro-Man? in their original incarnation were one of the most consistently mind-blowing bands this universe has ever seen, so when they recently regrouped for some live shows (please come to the UK please dudes) I was pretty excited. Here we are now on 7” number three, with a bold vocal-led track ‘Disintegrate’ taking up the entire A side. It’s got a bit of a garage-psych feel to it but still with their sleek retro-futurist aesthetic intact. Comparison-wise, Devo and MoAM side-project Servotron spring to mind. I can see why it’s the single but to be honest I do want to hear more instrumentals from these men (or astro-men).

Luckily for me, over on the other side are two very different instrumentals. ‘Baby’s First Spacewalk’ is the closest we get to what you’d call the “classic” Astro-Man? style, a pacey surf instrumental with lots of whammy bar abuse - highly danceable and a concession to the old-school fans, before they close with a weird little synth-led piece which has a wibbly analogue ‘80s soundtrack feel which brings to mind Pye Corner Audio or Boards of Canada. Surprising, forward-thinking and as always entertaining stuff from everyone’s favourite sci-fi surf quartet. As always a great balance between sonic experimentation and surfy rock’n’roll fun. Can’t wait to hear the album!
