Two Inch Astronaut, “Zones”

Post Author:
two inch astronaut

Two Inch Astronaut is a Maryland-based monster. Whether they're working on discordant riffs or intensely complicated throwaround math-ish drums, their production quality rings of a definitive 90s-inspired atonality. The energy compacted into two minutes of straight up-and-down, back-and-forth guitar lines is impressive, and harkens back to bands like Built To Spill, Dismbemberment Plan, and Jawbox. We have no problem with the return of a previous, more sweater-filled time, especially given the technicality it takes to perform—it's not just the same old garage rock anymore. Bring back the complication with their song “Zones”.
