Cosmonaut plays Legion 10.19

Cosmonaut plays Legion 10.19

Cosmonaut is one of those bands that almost seem too good to be true. When I first listened to them, the first thing I thought was... ok, which one of these guys was in a supergroup and is now starting over fresh? Turns out, these guys are all starting fresh. Just out of school, the quartet sounds like they've been at this for years, displaying a maturity in their songwriting far beyond their lean years. Sounding something like Pavement's slack tied together with Cymbals Eat Guitars' epic emotionalism, Cosmonaut has 'hype' written all over them. Just listen to 'Hurry Up' EP opener 'Your Knife (My Side)' and hear what could be the envy of Julian Casablancas, coming through singer John Paul Manley's tenor. Produced by Kyle “Slick” Johnson (Wavves, Modest Mouse), the band's debut album is everything you want to hear from a young band in line with age old expectations of how classic rock songs is supposed to sound. Their next show is on Friday October 19th at Legion Bar, with Fast Years, The N'ere Dowells, & others. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
