Given this impressive introduction, we wanted to know what made them tick so got the band to pick the three records that have most influenced them.
With CSMA having just released a new album, possibly their most accessible (although I use that word advisedly!) yet we thought it would be a great time to get Chrissie to talk about some of the albums that have influenced her.

This isn’t about punishment, it’s nourishment for the head and heart, and Gnod have had plenty to feed us since.
Ever wondered what Vangelis jamming with 65daysofstatic would sound like? Yeah, nor had we until this track from Reformat dropped in our inbox but we know now and it’s absolutely fantastic. Our interest sufficiently piqued, we asked Luke Pajak from the band to pick the three records that had the greatest influence on their musical direction.
