New Release: CHRIST VS KRISHNA – Sidewalk Astronomy

January 25, 2012

Toronto new wave outfit, Christ vs Krishna, recently came up on The iM’s radar and boy are we glad they did. We’ve had the opportunity to check out their new album and now it’s your turn.

Listen to Sidewalk Astronomy in the Bandcamp player below which was produced at Chemical Sound Studios here in Toronto. Recommended tracks include, I Am Black Hole, Diamonds Die (video below) and Coming Up. You can even download the whole release at the link above – not a bad deal as far as we’re concerned.

In other news, the official release party for the album goes down at The Velvet Underground on March 2nd with Most People, Drugs In Japan and Jay Sad. For info on this and Christ vs Krishna, visit them over on Facebook.
