The Jersey emo project Astral Cloud Ashes was introduced a couple of years ago.

Earlier in the month a new LP – Dear Absentee Creator – (which is available on bandcamp) was revealed.
The eleven track album threads through a more forlorn and maths driven filter than music previously featured though still maintains the familiar lofidelity gazey hiss which affords the music its attractive patina.
My pick of the release being the penultimate – Gush.

Coming to surface as an entity at the beginning of this year Astral Cloud Ashes has released one LP – the ten track Too Close To The Noise Floor (available on bandcamp) and there is a second in the making.
It will be interesting to follow the development of Astral Cloud Ashes as the début LP contains a breadth of styles with additional instrumentation provided by musicians based in England, to discover if there are other musicians in Jersey with whom Antony can create a sturdier line-up, if it remains a solo project or if he relocates to England to enable regular live performance and also to discover the future direction of musical out-put.
From Too Close To The Noise Floor the third song – Grateful For The Ghost In Our House which minds of maths-rock with rounded angles, giving the track a space-gaze fuzziness to the angular backdrop.

This has been sitting in my in-box for a few days, so a little late coming to the table with a release that came out on the 28th July – My Burning Bush. My apologies to JJ for taking so long to get to it.
