Late Aster: A Minor Fantasy

Late Aster up the ante with A Minor Fantasy. Using a piano prelude by Dmitri Shostakovich (no bonus points for guessing what key that was in) as the base they are off for a journey through jazz, dream pop, triphop and classical music. All band members studied at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, acquiring a deep knowledge of musical theory. The single is a 101 in structured spontaneity - every note counts, but it feels that it was invented on the spot. The video was made by four/ten media.

Late Aster:
Aaron Messing: trumpet, synth, vocals
Anni Hochhalter: horn, vocals
Charles Mueller: guitar, audio engineering
Cameron LeCrone: drums

Their limited vinyl (50 copies) debut EP True and Toxic will be released on May 21 via Bright Shiny Things.
