I discovered Astronaut Wife summer 2013 on Dave's Lounge podcast, and I downloaded and have been listening to their Flying Saucer album constantly - on repeat-play daily - seems like more than any other album in my possession. Everything about it is praiseworthy: arrangements, singing, songwriting, synths, percussion, mastering. Yet how do you tell them this? There's no AW website, no publisher, no Facebook page, no Twitter account, no way to send my accolades to them. With this level of talent they should consider some channel of communicating with their fans and producing more content.
I first heard Astronaut Wife in 2001 or 2002 and have always wanted more. I absolutely love the nearly seamless harmonies that really make their music for me. Someone needs to fly to MN and bribe them to make another disc!
Is it possible to wear out a CD? Yes! I've gone through three copies of Flying Saucer because I couldn't stop listening to it. I want new music from them. I bought one of their t-shirts and it's one of my favorite.
I can't believe their shoutbox is empty and they have just under 600 fans. I listened to Astronaut Wife years ago (must have been more than five), and have rediscovered them recently...they're still amazing, but they have since written new stuff...who knew? haha
