8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 25 September 2013
Californian post-punkers Cosmonauts release their third album this week, mixing the chiming coldness of ‘80s post-punk with ‘60s and ‘90s psychedelia like the drone-pop cousin of The Birthday Party and Echo and the Bunnymen and the Brian Jonestown Massacre. I guess in terms of contemporaries it’s reminding me of Crystal Stilts or Deerhunter; a drifty, reverb-happy take on ‘60s garage pop, essentially, with a bit of a BRMC-style mid-paced hypno plod.
The press release says that this is “Britpop inspired” but I’m not getting that so much, or at least not the ‘90s variety - there’s more than a hint of the Kinks and The Byrds rattling around in their hippie-indie stylings though. Expect ‘60s style garage pop tunes with Spacemen 3 drones and monotone vocals, chiming guitar and the occasional tambourine. Not bad at all actually.
