Astral Glide – Flamingo Graphics

Astral Glide – Flamingo Graphics
Self released – 2020
Rock, Stoner, Hard
Rated: ***

Florida fourpiece Astral Glide released their debut album Flamingo Graphics early June. Nine tracks of raw, grimy, lo-fi hardrock, stoner and grunge with a southern edge. The recording gives off this proper ‘our first’ vibe and the quality therefor lacks some overall touches here and there. Which can’t be said for intention or ability; even though not every track sticks to what appears to be their forte, they all add something to the mix. Heavy and broad one moment, speedy and narrow the next. Space Machine without a doubt being a favorite of mine, mirroring a bit some early Goss. The Lake as well, Goss like atmosphere and has this different take to this heavy thing we all love. In all, Astral Glide offers up a tasty plate of heavy rock; but it might perhaps take a second album to get the flavoring just right.
