Sometimes, I find it rather surreal that I once used to live for many years in the very same gorgeous town inhabited by an endless array of amazing musicians. And I take solace and pride in that fact, only wishing that I had been as glued to the music scene as I am now back then. Oakland’s Astronauts, etc. would certainly be a mighty fine neighbor to gloat about. Just listen to their latest single, a breezy, sexy work of velvet smoothness named Shake It Loose. Very loose languor drifts in euphoric waves from the relaxed retro soul jam. Anthony’ Ferraro’s silken vocals waft and swirl dreamily over softly psychedelic and warmly saturated guitar. Shake It Loose is the latest taste from Astronauts, etc.’s forthcoming debut album, Mind Out Wandering, out September 18th via Hit City U.S.A. Pre-order on iTunes, or snag the vinyl from the label. There’s even a limited edition yellow colored 180-gram edition.
