Vast Asteroid - Spacegaze (Feat. Dave Catching - Eagles Of Death Metal)



New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Racked during a magical week at the legendary Rancho de la Luna studios in Joshua Tree, CA by producer/engineer Andy Freeman, and highlighted by the likes of Dave Catching (Eagles Of Death Metal) as a special guest, debut of the new born outfit Vast Asteroid is able to instantly bring together the lovers of shoegaze, cosmic rock, britpop and heavier stuff like stoner and desert rock.

Hailing from Los Angeles, Vast Asteroid is a supergroup of sorts, made up of The Warlocks former bassist Mimi Star, seminal Mancunian punk-rock band Slaughter And The Dogs drummer Mark Reback and singer and guitarist James Poulos.
Racked during a magical week at the legendary Rancho de la Luna studios in Joshua Tree, CA by producer/engineer Andy Freeman, their self-titled debut is able to instantly bring together the lovers of shoegaze, space rock, britpop and heavier stuff like stoner and desert rock. They also gave a name to this unique blend they together give shape to: spacegaze.

And they got it right, judging by the cosmic afflatus that permeates their rock-hard wall of fuzz. This record is a glance at the night sky from the desert, and its otherworldly yet hauntingly familiar epic instantly blows your mind and soothes your soul. The songs foundations lay on a tremendously mighty rhythm section, that shakes your speakers as if an asteroid had felt into your backyard; while brilliant guitar riffs and vocals capture the listener and won't ever free him. The extra guitar madness by Dave Catching on "Spacegaze" is the icing on the cake.

Songcraft is particularly treated, and the band shows the ability to take away everything that is not needed, leading us straight to the very essence of things. Born from a brief writing and rehearsal period in and around the Highland Park neighborhood of L.A., the band's debut full-length album will be released on 17th November.

About the recording of Spacegaze, drummer Mark Reback says:
"Rancho de la Luna Studio host extraordinaire + co-conspirator Dave Catching of Eagles Of Death Metal, joined Vast Asteroid with his guitar magic on a late night totally improvised jam that we were lucky to capture on tape, and is presented on the album's closing song 'Spacegaze', with no overdubs or editing, and the wind and rain and chimes were recorded real time from the front porch of the studio during the storm outside while we were jamming... It all adds up to pure sonic magic."
