Song of the Day 4/28/08: Shy Child - Astronaut
Structurally, "Astronaut" is a three-legged footrace: it's like Shy Child chopped every fourth bar off of a pounding dance track and forced themselves to keep pace with the resulting 3/4 sprint. Sonically, it's like they took Goldfrapp's "Strict Machine" and amped it the hell up, sneaking a little Of Montreal into the mix for flash cameos under their lightning refrains. One part psychedelic for every three parts body-moving, Shy Child is the latest gem on the Kill Rock Stars roster.
