Outer Space Heaters reach new heights with 'Transmissions'

     Outer Space Heaters are set two release their second full-length album, 'Transmissions,' at tonight's free, 21+ Brickhouse show alongside Psychadelic Indie Rock trio Astro Tan. Everyone who comes out to the show will gain exclusive access OSH's new release.

     Those familiar with their aptly-named debut album, 'Desolate Surf,' are in for some nice surprises in the band's latest effort. 'Transmissions' contains all the surfy, thematic guitar-led enthusiasm of their prior release, but adds some bold new influences and creative sonic experiments.

     The third track on the album, titled "Thruster" draws on 70's era psych-rock breakdowns while intermixing brass-laden decrescendos and samples of what sounds like the inside of NASA's training facility, punctuated by the band's signature surf-rock jive. Another gem in this ten track riff-fest is the title track of the album, which features a dynamic call-and-response between shotgun-blast snare hits and staccato, arpeggiated guitar bleeps and bloops that ends with the best use of a saxophone solo I've heard all year.
