anthony ferraro’s work as astronauts, etc. has blossomed into a full-band effort; the oakland outfit will release their debut album, mind out wandering, on september 18th via hit city usa.  we’ve been anticipating this album for the better part of the calendar year, and the band’s prospects only improve with their latest offering, “shake it loose.”  the track sits squarely on the front of the beat, in contrast to previous spaced-out offerings, and finds astronauts, etc. exercising their knowledge of pop mechanics, but “shake it loose” really flourishes once its melody disappears behind a curtain of psychedelic haze at the half-way mark.  take a listen below.
