"Astrobal, nee Emmanuel Mario, burst onto the scene in his native France through collaborations with some of the country's most cutting edge artists, including Arnaud Fleurent-Didier, Holden, Institut, Iko Cerie. Most notably, his work as a producer and drummer with Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier left an indelible mark, rendering some of the most singular work from the iconic French chanteuse. The album is aqueous, each track a slow wave building before a momentous crash of sound, with clean lines and fluid form. Symphonic strings and ethereal ambient washes are married to buzzing synths and Astrobal's crisp, crackling drums. Astrobal creates a universe one can swim around in; from start to finish, it is of a particular mood, all beholden to the vibe. It is an assured first full-length from an artist who has put in the time to find himself and build his own world." (label info) vinyl-only, comes with CD version of the album
