audiobooks, the duo of Evangeline Ling and producer/mixer David Wrench, made one of the best, brilliantly bonkers albums of 2018 with their debut, Now! (in a minute). Three years later, they're finally back with Astro Tough, which will be out October 1 via Heavenly Recordings.
“The first album was a photograph of the beginnings of the project, recorded without any overall plan,” Wrench says. “Astro Tough is more scripted, but a script that still allowed for lots of improvised scenes. There was more intention behind the songs, and a lot more refining. We weren’t precious about everything being spontaneous and a first take, like on the first record, even though some of it ended up being that. We made a lot more material for this record but chose the tracks that best worked together as an album.”
