Boomkat product review for:

astrid - High Blues

**Quietly engaging and sweetly psychedelic chamber compositions sans frontieres. Top class recording and production, plus mastering by Helge Sten (Deathprod)** "French group Astrïd started life around founder members Cyril Secq and Yvan Ros back in 1997, first as a guitar/drums duo before the arrival of violinist Vanina Andreani the year after and clarinettist Guillaume Wickel in 2005. Since 2007 they have lived and worked between Nantes and Marseille. The music of Astrïd has roots in improvised music, ambient, 70's folk and jazz, classical and contemporary music from Ravel to Pärt. There's also a kinship to artists like Philip Glass, Brian Eno, Mark Hollis, No Neck Blues Band and The Rachels (who they have performed with) but first and foremost they have established a unique and personal chamber music seamlessly mixing instruments, structures and approaches from both rock and classical music."
