The eighth release on Drone Rock Records is the debut vinyl album for Stupid Cosmonaut, an ambient-electronic-noise outfit from the North West of England who are tipped for big things in the modern psych/drone world. Algol provides the perfect soundtrack to the Soviet Bloc era science-fiction movies you can only dream about.
In the bands’ own words, “Algol, invites you to discorporate and allow your mind to be piloted, wordlessly, through stunning cosmic vistas of kaleidoscopic guitars and dark synths before being ferociously atomised by the crushing, untamed forces of deep space as its story unfolds. Myriad calculations hum in the computer brain of an automated space craft, it’s cargo, a lone passenger suspended in stasis, dreaming and oblivious as they navigate a celestial storm at the barycenter of Algol, The Demon Star.”
Algol will be a very limited run of just 300 copies (60 of these going directly to the band) pressed onto black and grey side a/side b coloured effect vinyl to match the hand drawn pencil drawings of the cover art by band-member Steven McNamara.
