Californian quartet COSMONAUTS released their fourth album last summer, titled A-OK! One of the best 2016 long-players in my book. More versatile than their previous work. From amplified pop punk to swirling psychedelia. A soundtrack for different moods. What the hell! Let the music do the talking…


.
Last Sunday they played my hometown Ghent (Belgium) in a packed club, as part of their European tour. Live the band create a wall-of-mind-bending-psych-sound. A nasty, yet melodic melting pot of noise à la The Jesus and Mary Chain used to fabricate in the 90s. Even gripping, intimate ballad ‘Party At Sunday’ from the new album got a mountain-of-decibels treatment. But, unfortunately, most of the time the specific color and spirit of each of the songs got lost in the band’s battle with the cracking PA. This time louder
didn’t mean better.
