Description

Astrosoniq aren't strangers to switching up their sound. Going back to their 2000 debut, Son of A.P. Lady and across 2002s Soundgrenade, 2006s Speeder People, and Quadrant, there's been very little outside their purview in terms of style. Country, funk, metal, psychedelia, space rock, weirdo noise, on and on. They have been and remain a deeply creative band.

The difference is that on Big Ideas Dare Imagination, that extends to the makeup of the band itself. In that way, it would be a mistake to judge Big Ideas Dare Imagination like a conventional album, because it isn't one. Astrosoniq's project here isn't simply to make another record, but to memorialize their friend and compatriot, like sitting shiva in a recording studio.

One has to wonder if a fifth Astrosoniq LP would even exist without van Drongelen's passing as the driver. After being sidelined for several years owing to health problems on the part of van de Vondervoort, the group had made a sort-of return to playing live, but it's entirely possible they wouldn't have reconvened for new material, and even if they did, it almost certainly wouldn't have been in this form/format. It could be argued, then, that Bidi should get some credit on that tracklisting too, for inspiration and for being the driving force behind pushing the band to create a new work. Certainly though, the clear dedication to him shown in the outing speaks to this.
