Heineken. As in, this is the band from the omnipresent Heineken ads, that one commercial you swore was scored by Annie. Before they were hawking terrible suds, the music of the Asteroids Galaxy Tour was best known for slinging the iPod Touch. Hmm, see a theme here? Before they were a glimmer of light in every advertising director's eye, the Copenhagen sextet was making the rounds in support of a handful of uneven recordings—many of which aren't available Stateside—that tend to overreach and lean too heavily on the nasally delivery of frontwoman Mette Lindberg. But that doesn't mean the Asteroids Galaxy Tour aren't fun. Besides, who am I to stop you from enjoying a set that includes "The Safety Dance" (which they cover for some reason on their The Golden Age EP) and all your favorite commercial jingles.
