ABOUT

 

 

 

 

 

 

Composer Joseph Andrew Thompson and backup vocalist Anne Rose Thompson create evocative and eerily harmonized music as Astralingua.  The nomadic space-folk duo explores life’s unknowns,  blending haunting vocal harmonies, radiant strings, and otherworldly soundscapes into crafted songs that fall somewhere between classical, folk and psychedelia.

 

 

 

RECENT PRESS

 

PopMatters

“Flooded with gorgeous, philosophical melancholia from start to finish, Astralingua’s Safe Passage is a masterful accomplishment in every way…it’s damn near impossible not to get lost in its often subtle (but always breathtaking) introspective magnificence.”

-Jordan Blum

Fatea

“Safe Passage is a glorious album…music that could soothe the most savage of beasts.”

 -Adam Jenkins

For Folk’s Sake

Here Comes The Flood

“…filled with so many hidden gems and jaw-dropping musicianship that it might require some time to fully digest and appreciate.”

-Hans Werksman

Soundblab

“This is music that glances back at darkness, and then brushes beauty and deep sincerity over that black hole…the album dips its notes into the river of timeless beauty.”

-Bill Golembeski
