7oungin’s Here!

Yes, a new iteration in the Loungin’ series, and frankly, it’s due in large part to the fact that I’ve been using Bandcamp more and more lately and making amazing discoveries or rediscoveries — ie catalogs of artists I know but was unaware of. A downloadable mp3 file is available on request.

Spaceful of Astronauts… The lost album from Handful of Snowdrops’ alter ego is out!


In 1993, after the demise of Handful of Snowdrops Jean-Pierre Mercier, writer and composer of the band, began a new journey into instrumental electronic music under the new moniker Spaceful of Astronauts. After a couple of performances in rave events at the beginning of the 90s, he redirected his focus toward a more open and ambient sound that would culminate a few years later.

Nanomusique is the title of the long forgotten Spaceful of Astonauts’ album. Originally recorder in 1995, but never release for lack of resources, it has been completely remastered for the occasion of its official release as well as extended with two bonus tracks from the same era, namely Orion and Big Black Bubble.

You can now stream excerpts of every track of this mesmerizing electronic and instrumental work from the new SoA Mypace profile.

The 1 hour, 19 minutes and 11 seconds ambient epic is ONLY available as a DOWNLOADABLE DIGITAL ALBUM directly from the Handful of Snowdrops website shop and the Spaceful of Astronauts official Myspace profile.
