Philly-based country-psych rockers Asteroid #4 is a band I've had an affinity ever since I heard their wonderful album Honeyspot. They have an excellent new record coming out in September, but before we get to it, let's talk a bit about their latest single. It's a two-track affair, and it's great. "Going Down" is a mellow rocker that's hazy and a little bit stoned. "My Love" isn't the Wings song, dammit, but it's a slow ballad that got a bit of reverb to it and reminds me of vintage My Morning Jacket, but not in a rip-off kind of way. I love the harmonies on it, too; it's a simply delightful and kind of sad song. You're going to experience my love of their music shortl, as I shall be writing about their two latest records, a singles collection and a new album. But I thought I'd introduce you now, as I recommend these two songs as a little tease. Enjoy!
