Track Of The Day: The Asteroid #4 - 'The Windmill Of The Autumn Sky'

As someone with a respectable knowledge of alternative music, it's surprising that it's taken 16 years for me to discover the California-based outfit The Asteroid #4, and it's also likely that many reading this article won't have experienced their music yet. 

So it's a good job that their new self titled album (out tomorrow) has found their way onto my radar, since it is something of a treat. Their eighth full length since their formation back in 1998 is a diverse record that's linked together by a psychedelic thread, taking various genres to far out territories. A major highlight arrives with the solemnly majestic beauty of 'The Windmill Of The Autumn Sky', a lovely helping of Americana flavoured dreampop that exudes a harmonious warmth and a compellingly heartfelt elegance. The song will be released digitally as one half of a double A side single (along with 'Back Of Your Mind') next week on September 29. Read RW/FF's full review of this great album HERE.

Before that, the band have live dates coming up over the next week. Details below...

Thursday 25th September Shaklewell Arms, London
Friday 26th September Psych Fest in Liverpool
Saturday 27th September The Scene Lincoln
Sunday 28th September The Oobleck, Birmingham
