The Astounds - Get Alright With
Time to be astounded by The Astounds? We suggest you give them a chance. For our part, we only became aware of them via twitter, but after spinning their recently released album, Get Alright With, we think that this St. Louis five-piece has the power pop formula wired. The record is packed with concise, melodic blasts of energy with no shortage of fist pumping anthems. It has a visceral live-to-tape vibe that makes it perfect to kick off the long American holiday weekend. And we would be remiss if we didn't point out that it is available via Bandcamp for 'name your price'.
The Astounds are Dean, Julian, Mike, Zach, and Tyler.
