The Asteroid #4 are masters at psychedelic pop. It was rampant on the band’s fifth album, These Flowers Of Ours…, and you’ll hear them continue the same musical traits on their new one, Hail To The Clear Figurines. Being their sixth album, Figurines, the band expands this psychedelic sound to be more encompassing; the sounds fill more space, drowning out the world with epic reverb and dreamy words.
“Ignition Slated for Eight” is the final track off the new album and it is an easy favorite. The Asteroid #4 injects reverb into nearly every aspect of the song, from the heavy guitars to the tambourine-laden percussion. It’s a perfect example of what one can expect from Figurines — The Asteroid #4 definitely does not disappoint.
Hail To The Clear Figurines hits in February 2011 on The Committee to Keep Music Evil.
