Cosmonauts – Emerald Green 7″ out April 16th
Bad Afro is proud to introduce the first 7″ on the label with an American band. And what a great and especially LOUD release it is. Cosmonauts was formed in 2009 and resides in Orange County in sunny southern California and sound like a bunch of kids that don’t like the beach too much and spend their time inside taking drugs and complaining that it never rains. They have a huge buzzing sound that rely on broken amps and not pedals that most bands use to make noise.
Cosmonauts released their great self-titled debut album in 2010 on Permanent Records in Chicago although it was originally released on tape on Burger Records (Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, Black Lips and much more). They also have a 7″ out on the Italian label Goodbye Boozy. Cosmonauts have recently completed the recordings of their second album which will be released on Burger Records.
The 7″ includes the two exclusive songs Emerald Green and Motorcycle # 1. So far this 7” will not be available for download. It’s possible to listen to the 7″ on the Cosmonauts bandcamp.
