Astro Sounds:The In Sound From Way Out!

This Weeks Post is a little Tribute to 2 of my favourite Bands,Stereolab and The High Llamas.Two influencial Groups that sometimes seem to merge into one.I selected 14 Comrades in Sound from Argentina to Japan.Bands that also try to amalgamate the strange Sounds of early Electronics,the metronomic Beats of Kraut Rock and the perfect Harmonies of 60's Pop Music to a Soundtrack for a Future that never happend. Echos of Jean Jaques Perrey,Raymond Scott & Dick Hyman meet the flawless Harmonies of The Beach Boys,The Free Design,Esquivel & Burt Bacharach,all stired up with some motorik technique of 1970s Krautrock groups such as Neu! and Faust.Space Age Bachelor Pad Music indeed.I hope you enjoy this little Audio Postcard from Outer Space and remember "Everybody's Weird Except Me".
