Astralasia are "one of the UK's best-loved festival bands". I haven't come across them before but then I don't get to many festivals. It does make me wonder how many festivals a band must play in order to qualify for the tag though. As their name suggests, this lot play cosmic psychedelia with an Eastern tinge courtesy of many drones and occasional bits of melodic wiggling with plucked strings and hand drums. Synths and guitars are the main building blocks though.   'Wind On Water' is an early stand-out. A slow-flowing and therapeutic meditation which mixes samples of lapping waves with tangy tropical slide guitar and subtle electronic drones and cosmic arpeggios before bursting into a Warm Digits-ish krautrock chug. There's one track on the accompanying 7" which is full of vocal samples and heads down a Death In Vegas/Public Service Broadcasting kind of rabbit hole, but for the most part this album is purely instrumental, with new agey synth jams slowly spiralling out into puttering hypnotic layers of bonged out kraut vibes.   It's good stuff, kosmische/krautrock worship that's warm and bright and approachable.
