Drive Moya – The Great End
Viennese trio Drive Moya make a compelling return with their second album, “The Great End”. Expanding on the unique sounds of their 2019 debut, the band takes their deep love of early 90s alternative genres as a foundation and injects it with a sharp contemporary twist. The resulting album is a rich blend of dreampop, grunge, post-rock, and shoegaze, building up a vivid tapestry of tones and moods, with each track presenting a distinct emotional journey.
The band’s songwriting takes centre stage here, with songs crafted into unique stories, from direct and unembellished indie-rock numbers to atmospherically dense post-rock events. “The Great End” balances the gentle with the energetic, creating suspenseful arcs and showcasing the band’s versatility in creating gripping musical landscapes, inviting listeners to lie back and enjoy the view.
Dirty Talons – s/T
Dirty Talons’ self-titled debut album compiles the first two recording sessions the band completed in 2021 and 2022. All basic instrumentals, as well as most lead vocals have been tracked live at Radiokulturhaus in Vienna, Austria in just a few days. While guitarists Marco and Zock, as well as bassist Bernie have released several records together during their time in ASTPAI in the past, this album marks the remarkable physical debut of vocalist Jess Howells.
Jess’ lyrics explore intra- and interpersonal struggles and connections from different perspectives and touch upon themes such as anxiety, love, insecurity, narcissism, anger, loneliness and regret.
All tracks have been mixed and mastered by the amazing Peter Miles, who has previously worked with bands such as Architects, We Are The Ocean, Petrol Girls, Crazy Arm and lots more over at Middle Farm Studios in Devon, UK.
MAIIJA – I AM

Currently, the artist plays in the band Vienna Rest in Peace and collaborates with the Seattle-based performance group Saint Genet.
Thirteen years after the release of her last album, it’s time for a new name: MAIIJA. For her current project, Marilies Jagsch and producer Peter Paul Aufreiter (Hearts Hearts) invited some of Vienna’s most exciting musicians* to record the eleven songs of the album “I AM”, which will be released on Noise Appeal Records in September 15th 2023.
