4 stars A decent Post Rock. An Irish veteran post rock combo GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT have released the tenth studio-based album entitled "Ghost tape #10" in February 2021. For me sounds like their musical characteristic be deep, heavy, a bit melancholic but smoothly dreamy, and through the latest creation they have created and launched such a soundscape for us again. Under the pandemic / lockdown situation all over the world, we should get more energetic and more positive even at home, and such a powerful stuff will be able to make us smiley. Although the sleeve is slightly weird and I cannot understand what they mean via this pic, the overall atmosphere in this creation is not ghostly nor hazy but cool and tight, just like they encourage us.

From the beginning of the first track "Adrift" straight drumming and uplifting guitar riffs on up-tempo melodic / rhythmic lines and chilling vibes are incredibly impressive. Complicated repetitive phrases full of delicate but massive instrumental potentiality should be intensively breaking into our brain. "In Flux" gets started with monotonous dissonance, that reminds me of the similarity to Zodiac by Mittelwinternacht '71. But in the middle part kicking movements and loud guitar-oriented sound explosion attack us again and again. The last lingering fuzz catches our heart strictly. "Fade" is quite speedy, winding psychedelia  regardless of its title. They would encourage the audience and themselves in this impressive sound manner.

On the contrary, "Burial" has quite melancholy and mind instability through the appearance. Dreamy melody lines and flavourful rhythm bases like Japanese folk, or Enka, relax us leisurely, but fuzzy evocative developments in the middle part lift us up on the top of the mountain. Wonderful is such a sound contrast or gap. "Barren Trees" is another comfortable, acceptable one. We the audience concerned under no good circumstances would be relieved by this fascinating, magnificent dramatic song getting to our heart. And the last acoustic gem "Luminous Waves" is digested into our stomach pretty smoothly and eases our mind deeply in our inner space. Safe and sound, they will give us via the brilliant crystal.

Just a remark: this album sounds like a glass of Irish whiskey with delicate palate and powerful aftertaste. Good.
