THE WEIRDING (RISE ABOVE)
LTD EDITION VINYL RE-ISSUE 400 COPIES ONLY Now that the term Prog is no longer considered a four letter-word, the world is ready for a band like San Diego based Astra to actually make the term vital and effortlessly cool.
Their Psychedelic brand of Progressive Rock manages to avoid the ghastly, self-indulgent clich? that predominated the bloated gut of its bad hair styled mid-seventies/early eighties definition.
Astra make timeless music for timeless people. Their sound is a true breath of fresh air in these generally stagnant times.
The care and attention given to every detail within The Weirding displays a dedication that is these days seldom seen or heard.
