about

'Astral Transmissions' is the dark follow up to Stupid Cosmonaut's debut cassette release 'Abstract Concepts'.

"We have arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces". Carl Sagan

Full album available to download now. Official Cassette Tape/Spotify/iTunes/CD release on the 30th September 2016. Pre-orders being taken now for cassette and cd.

Review from Dayz of Purple and Orange.

"Musically, this is right up my boulevard.....intelligent, thought-provoking and challenging. The guys have kept things the right side of accessible whilst still retaining an experimental edge. What's interesting, and somewhat satisfying, is that even in the space of 2 releases, a musical evolution can be seen which bodes exceptionally well for the future....these guys will grow and grow and, hopefully, become real torch-bearers for experimental/drone electronica"

Review from Primal Music.

"Astral Transmissions’ is a dark thrill ride into the sonic subconscious of a band who have no off switch when it comes to experimenting with frequency bending and sound manipulation to collectively create astonishing soundscapes that will both test your psyche and immerse you head long into a sonic world where you will experience something very few artists in this genre can do"

Review from The Obelisk

"AT3: Hassium” culls its push from old footage of moonwalks and space missions, voiceovers included over top of the wash of noise that emerges, consumes, and ultimately, recedes. Driven by synth and keys and electronics, it’s not going to be for everybody — there are some genuinely challenging moments — but those who can dig it are going to really dig it, and that kind of thing is always cool by me."
