4 stars God is an Astronaut is a three-piece instrumental post-rock band reminiscent of artists such as Explosions in the Sky and Mono. The songs build up from tranquil ambiance to blistering intensity throughout the whole album. It's quite a beautiful piece of music I have to say and I've been addicted to it for about a week or two now. Everything is very catchy, but also has a lot of feeling. If you listen to Explosions in the Sky, whose music is also featured in Friday Night Lights, you'll know what I'm talking about.

For anyone not familiar with their sound, imagine taking some epic electronic movie soundtrack or something and adding some tasty guitar with lots of reverb. The music here is never complex, and sticks to just making some nice melodies. So if you want to relax and enjoy some nice thinking music, try this.
