Astronauts of Antiquity Lets Their Trippy Neo-Soul Show

Every time I sat and listened to Astronauts of Antiquity, I kept trying to come up with a way to describe what I was hearing. I discovered that was a hard task! Each time I come up with a description, I listen again, and come up with something else. So, this is the description? conclusion? I came too ... funky-soulful-electro- jazzy-trippy-trance-lounge-club-pop music. Yeah, I know, that's quite a label! But their sound encompasses all of that.

If you're in the New York area, they'll be at World Music venue Shrine in Manhattan on April 10.

Check them out for yourselves. Listen to a few songs from their album Rocket Science For Dummies which came out November of last year.

"Strangest Places"

"Rocket Science"
