I've really been into the Synthwave stuff lately and I'm excited to have found the Dead Astronauts. They capture the 80's nostalgia in many ways through their sound, but they infuse it with just enough modern vibe for that lasting appeal. Emotional melodies complemented by pulsing bass lines and those familiar 80's synth effects. I love this!
Dark, gritty, heavy and funky. One of the more intelligent and varied acts on the Synthwave scene. Can't decide on the favorite track, but the first two tracks always get me pumped and they really set the mood for the rest of the album.
The first, great album find of 2013 for me! This album succeeds at sounding fresh in it's genre (kinda hard to categorize though). The Soviet space race concept fits the albums mood perfectly too. Thanks to Angry Metal Guy, for pointing this out!
