Astaron from Vienna Austria were a music and art performance duo made up of Angie Mörth (member of Viele Bunte Autos) and Martina Aichhorn which existed from 1984 to 1989. Influenced by the Viennese Actionism, Einstürzende Neubauten and Kate Bush and armed with a big dose of black humour and a true love for trash culture they created an impressively unique body of work. They released two DIY tapes, one 12" and this stunning self titled album at the tail end of 1987. It was originally released by local label Ton Um Ton Records in a criminally low pressing of 500 copies. It's an unadjusted highly experimental and totally addictive dark wave album with hints of minimal post punk. The music ranges from dirge-like chants to ethereal pop to haunting ballads. It's pure melancholic beauty from start to finish. Think KUKL, Cocteau Twins, Young Marble Giants for the minimal sound, Brian Eno, Lizzy Mercier Descloux and Diamanda Galas. Sealed Records are proud to give this Haunting rhythmic and gorgeous album a new lease of life. This time adding a printed inner sleeve and 12 page booklet.
