It’s that time, folks.
What time? That time when we once again discover something awesome together. That time.
Astrakhan is a band from Vancouver (one of the coolest cities on the planet) that will simply resonate with you. What they do, on every level, seduces that junkie side of me.
Yes, folks — I’m a music junkie, and I just can not get enough of it. So long as it performs, it innovates, and it spits in the face of anything contrived in the spirit of commercialism.
If pressed for a genre-limiting description, Astrakhan is progressive sludge with a hint of doom, churned out by dudes who are keenly familiar with their instruments.
The band’s forthcoming release, A Tapestry of Scabs and Skin, will be out December 12 through War On Music.
It was tracked at Rain City Studios with Jesse Gander (Bison B.C., 3 Inches of Blood) at the boards.
The following tune comes from the new Astrakhan, and we’re proud to be bringing it to you exclusively.
The song is called “Blinded By The Diamond Planet.” If you don’t get into it, you never have to trust me again. But trust me…you will get into it.
