4 stars PEANUT BRITTLE SATELLITE are from Buffalo, New York and this is their debut which was released in 2011. They are a six piece band and play all-instrumental music. They obviously have a sense of humour when you consider the band's name and the title of this record. That really doesn't show up in their sound though as we get fairly heavy music here with lots of violin and guitar.

"Anisotropic Axon Re-Electroplation, Mvt. 1" has a nice heavy sound and some impressive drumming around 1 1/2 minutes. A spacey calm comes in after 2 minutes to the end. "Cruisin'" has a jazzy flavour early on. Violin after 2 minutes as it turns intense, then back to that jazzy mode late to end it. "Billie's Blue Bodega" turns heavy 1 1/2 minutes in. This continues to shift and change as drums standout 4 1/2 minutes in and violin before 6 1/2 minutes.

"Fierce Chemchok Heruka And The Between Dieties" builds and it sounds so good as the violin rips it up over top. It's the guitar's turn next. It does settles some 4 minutes in. Nice. "Showdown At The Bump-Bump Ranch" has a heavy drum led intro with violin over top. Huge bass lines join in. Great sound 3 minutes in when it settles. "Fear" has crisp drumming with guitar to start. It picks up before 2 minutes. Violin after 3 1/2 minutes and the guitar joins in too. Bass and drums lead late. "Anisotropic Axon Re-Electroplation, Mtv 3" ends the album with more heavy music with violin playing over top. It's intense 4 1/2 minutes in.

This has impressed me enough to offer up that fourth star.
