Astronomers with Northern Diver

“As the name suggests, Charlottesville quartet Astronomers favor an expansive, stargazing sound. Guitars circle like satellites through eccentric, chiming orbits. Though the bright, busy tones get exotic and ethereal enough to suggest shoegazers, they’re much more restrained, grounded in a straightforwardly melodic sensibility … Frontman Nate Bolling’s moody baritone croon could definitely find a home across the pond, but the jagged churn of tracks like “Or Maybe It’s Nothing” melds post-punk slash to an elegant Britpop sweep. For a relatively new band they’re remarkably assured, with an impressively fanciful sound.”

A wonderful, welcoming place. Musicians are warmly welcomed at the Wednesday jams. The lattes are delicious. And the poetry reading last night amazed me. What talented people live in Nelson County.
