Mean Sun

Gli astronomi definiscono il sole intermedio come una stella immaginaria che si muove al ritmo di rotazione dell'equatore. Forse è stata proprio questa suggestione che ha guidato i Brasstronaut dopo la pubblicazione del loro acclamatissimo debutto del 2010, "Mt. Chimera".Infatti mentre "Mt. Chimera" si muoveva tra jazz e pop, come tra klezmer ed elettronica, "Mean Sun" è approdato a uno stile che privilegia di più la forma canzone.

“Where the band’s previous releases found them juggling their disparate influences—’70s soft-rock, Eastern European jazz, post-millennial Radiohead—with Mean Sun, Brasstronaut have arrived at a seamless synthesis that’s elegantly rendered, rhythmically robust, and audaciously confident in its execution. This is an album that reclaims the phrase “adult contemporary” from EZ Rock advertising campaigns and reasserts it as a mode of urbane sophistication worth aspiring to.“ - The Grid

"Cerebral but loveable, this album is a gem" - Q (****)

"A stunning record built for late nights and lazy mornings" - The Fly (****)

"A fluid, genre-ignoring fresh breath of alt.pop air. Sweetly melancholic yet consistently shuffling between territories" - UNCUT (***)

"Look out for this exciting new Canadian band" - Gilles Peterson

There is something going on that hints at a new way forward. It's a bit Phoenix, a bit Talk Talk and a bit early Cure, a bit jazz at times. Too grand and stately to be a guilty pleasure, Mount Chimaera is the sort of record you'll either want to tell all of your friend about or keep to yourself" - Independent on Sunday
