The brainchild of Eric Brendo, The Asteroid Shop is made up of the explosively talented lineup of Austin-based musicians, Michael Kester (keys), Todd Pruner (guitar), Jonathan Konya (drums) and Mick Southerland (bass). Brendo takes The Asteroid Shop into a world full of elegance and pain to ease and tension all at once. The band skims through the same vast sea as contemporaries Richard Hawley, Spiritualized and Richard Ashcroft and channeling, at once, the likes of Mazzy Star, Pink Floyd, and My Bloody Valentine.
For their latest release, they have teamed up once again with engineer/producer Erik Wofford (The Black Angels, Explosions in the Sky), as well as with Carley Wolf and Jonathan Konya (The Ghost Wolves) and backing vocalist Olivia Vale to create the upcoming Distant Luxury EP. Further developing the strengths of the self titled debut, Distant Luxury will be a rare treat for those still look for craft in their songs.[audio:http://www.flocked.media/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/asteroidshop-alone.mp3]
