Breaking Bread: With The Incomparable The Asteroids Galaxy Tour

'Heart Attack' is the title of the first single from indie rock pop/psychedelic-funk band, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour. True to lyrical form, the opening tune along with the rest of the album have got all the right hip shake that allows us listeners to escape to another planet. It's been almost 4 years since we last heard from The Asteroids Galaxy Tour after releasing their debut album "Fruit" back in 2008 which spawned the hit single "Around The Bend."

Now, it truly seems like the US has been visited by space invaders with a massive horn section joined along with a groovy band accompanied by silky smooth vocal stylings from female front leader Mette Lindberg. This album kiddas is so infectious that I've officially elected "Out of Frequency" the first best new album of 2012!

I've not only attached the music video for the current single "Heart Attack" but I've compiled a favorites track-list from the new record. As always, indulge and be happy. Dig it out below!
