Ashrae Fax Static Crash! (remastered) LP/CD/Digital Download available on
"A relatively obscure band, and an album release that disappeared as soon as it was born, gets reissued and sounds completely fresh, out of time, and so relevant compared to what many young bands are trying to do. Fans of Cocteau Twins and Hyaena-period Siouxsie and the Banshees are going to salivate all over this record. Static Crash is New Wave and Dream Pop blended seamlessly along with some of the most powerful female vocals you've heard in the past decade."

"Static Crash," Ashrae Fax's 2003 record, is basically the dictionary definition of underground...This is an album of subtle distortions, of careful and considered twisting of pop structures and conventions..."Static Crash" is a beautiful combination of pop sensibility and daring exploration, the kind that may have been overlooked at the time, but now a decade on has proven itself timeless. So forget underground, let's shine all the light on this record we can.
