Very little information is available about Astrolemo other than he apparently hails from ‘space’. So may I be the first to welcome our new alien overlord by saying how much I dig his tune, even if ‘Living on Your Sofa’ seems to be concerned with quite Earthly matters. Its hazy downtempo intro and staggered bleeps suggest some Tru-Thoughts-style breaks but the song instead opens out into a lovely flourish of chilled house, with more than a wisp of The Beloved about it. All temperate beats and serene melody, ‘Living on Your Sofa’ is a delicious appetiser for the new EP from Astrolemo, wherever in the universe he may be.
