to place the group into just one category,
as its talent and music break the barriers of any single
genre. But if we had to, it'd be something along the lines of soulfully haunting. Constantly growing and experimenting, Astrea Corporation is
certainly one local act to keep an eye on.
Tomorrow night, Astrea Corp. will perform alongside fellow Black Locust Society members at 5 Points Lounge in Fort Lauderdale. We asked them to share five albums in their current rotation.
Take a peek at the list after the jump.
Killer Mike is hella underrated. Atlanta is a breeding ground for
insanely talented MCs, Mike is no exception. Added with El-P's
production and you have an album that shadows back to Public Enemy/Bomb Squad grit.
4. Tricky - Maxinquaye (Deluxe Remastered Version)
This album was the catalyst that inspired us to form Astrea Corp. in the
first place. The demos and remixes on the second disc delve even deeper
into the gloom and despair. Perfect for late-night drives.
3. Lavola - Leaving Paris
These guys are making some of the most intelligent and amazing rock
music around, locally or otherwise. Glad to call these guys our
2. Young Magic - Melt
sounds like it's melting. Vocals echoing like acid-soaked mantras. Psychedelic and humid. Summer listening recommended.
