Three brand new tracks from Wiener Neustadt’s Astpai. Recorded, engineered and mixed by Trevor Reilly and Mike Supina (A Wilhelm Scream) in New Bedford Massachusetts and mastered by Stephen Egerton (Descendents)! (Mike also added a sweet little over-the-top guitar solo at the end of “Just Ask”)
An energetic bounce and sing-along-ready vocals are two of the most immediately noticeable qualities of Broadcaster’s brand of refined pop-rock the band has been known for since their inception in 2010. The Long Island based-three piece have shown remarkable constancy in their output since their start and their last effort “A Million Hours” is no different. The result is something almost canonical.
