Ancient Astronauts - Into Bass and Time [Album]

The German duo, known as Ancient Astronauts, are set to release their latest album entitled Into Bass and Time. This will be their second album and a follow up to their 2009 album entitled We Are To Answer. Now, I don't say this often but this is one of the best albums I've heard in a while and I dare to say this may be one of the best albums of the year; especially for re-playability. The album mixes hip-hop/turntablism/d&b/rock and most genres in this vein but they do it so effortlessly. It's almost like a throwback to early DJ Shadow or even some Kid Kola but, at the same time, its not like an homage album or anything. They definitely take the style into their own hands and show a type of progression that is sometimes lost on newer artist. You will even find some reggae mixed in with this album which shows how eclectic it is. This is probably why the album grows on you so quick because most people nowadays are into way more than one or two genres. These guys just make good music. Check out the album at ALL costs. I'm not a great writer but let me reiterate what I was saying: Album good. You listen. Yes. The album drops on March 8th so find it and pre-order it. PAY for it. I've included a video of the duo talking about the upcoming album.
