Astral Brain is the project of Stockholm-based duo Einar Ekström and Siri af Buren, both veterans of the Swedish Indiepop scene. For their debut album, they’ve delivered a handful of delightful sonic treats that recall everyone from Stereolab and The Beach Boys to Free Design and Broadcast. (This is a very good thing, mind you!). We’re really fond of “Treasures,” which sounds like an outtake from Friends as reinterpreted by Laetitia Sadier. The rest of The Bewildered Mind delivers on this most delicious recipe. Enjoy!
