The latest album of experimental analogue murk'n'crackle and thoughtful indie rock from Astatine is limited to just 20 copies on vinyl and 40 on CD! Have you ever heard of such a thing? This one's for fans of strange haunted lo-fi pop so rare it almost doesn't exist. The track I've heard is comparable to early Hood but with harsher guitar sounds.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 10 October 2014

Proving that the mid 90’s shambling slop-core of home made recordings and broken 4 tracks is still alive and kicking are Paris’s Astatine who emerged out of another lo-fi group of the era Acetate Zero. There’s a lot of early Pavement style tape rot between the tracks but when they do break out into song they sound almost identical to Wetherby shamblers come post-rock kings Hood. They replicate terrifyingly perfectly a certain era of that band’s existence, which I guess is circa ‘95/96 when they released a load of 7”s on obscure labels.

‘Words Destruction’ and ‘Orgasms and Smiles’ in particular could have come straight off ‘Lee Faust’s Million Piece Orchestra’ 7” full of strummy acoustics, mumbled vocals and the needle way into the red. They also channel Lou Barlow’s early Sentridoh stuff and some of Epic 45’s experimental early pieces. The album is a sloppy drunken shambling thing full of love and charm and ideas, though not necessarily original ones!
