[on repeat] Astro//Panda

Astro  is an indie/electro-pop band from Chile.  Though I have know idea what they are singing about, I really don’t care.  I absolutely love what I hear.  Astro’s self-titled debut was released back in August, but I owe this discovery to the All Songs Considered podcast, more specifically Jasmin Garsd with NPRs Alt.Latino.  And like Jasmin, I believe Astro will find crossover success outside of Latin America.  I’m actually a bit surprised I haven’t heard them on the airwaves here in Los Angeles (the ball’s in your court KCRW).  I love love love the track “Panda”, it sounds like M83, only in Spanish.
