If you just started reading this blog, know that Astronauts, etc.’s debut LP Mind Out Wandering was one of my favorite albums of 2015. Just last week, the band released four live tracks from the album. And I thought I couldn’t love this band any more. Listening to the studio album, I had my skepticism about how good Astronauts, etc. could sound live, and then Live Out Wandering came out. I’m seriously impressed that they can sound like they do in-studio on a stage, but even more so, their live sound has a much more emotional sound. I love the emphasized jazz/funk elements that they have live, and it’s even funkier.
