Man or Astroman CL Recommends

MAN OR ASTRO-MAN?

Beaming down to our humble Earth during the retro surf revival of the early ’90s, Man or Astro-man? gifted humankind with hyperactive guitar riffs, kitsch sci-fi, lo-fi instrumentals and spacey garage rock. What better way to drink into the night than with the return of MOAM? After over a decade, they landed a new recording last year, the ripping album Defcon 5…4…3…2…1. Sound wizard Steve Albini, who has manned the boards on a couple of earlier albums, produced the latest one, and it bloody rocks. During this century, they’ve done sporadic gigs, and now the band is back on the road with harder-edged, propulsive rock without diluting their signature surf backdrop. Along with a slew of albums, they’ve also composed numerous bits of film and soundtrack work, including compositions for Nickelodeon and The Cartoon Network. (Samir Shukla)
