((Dead Stars)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness
Written by Patrick McNamara
Hey, you. Did you know that many of the brightest stars we see in the sky have already died? But did you also know there are many more stars being born that we just can’t see yet? Please take a moment to consider before we move on and talk about a good band. 5 minutes oughta do it.
Hey, five-minutes-later you. Welcome back from your journey through space and time. I know you dug it but I’m glad you're back. What I really wanted to discuss with you today here on earth is how Dead Stars are a happy fuzzy lo-fi mad decent journey made by three guys (Jeff! John! Jaye! OK!) who like strong singable melodies. You should really consider getting into them. And I should mind my own business.
Dead Stars remind me of those golden days when Buffalo Tom and Bob Mould and Paul Westerberg and The Lemonheads ruled my compact disc collection. Music you could turn on, take your boots off, kick back, raise them tired dogs, and enjoy a cold one to.
(Please note: back in the golden days, a cold one for me meant Capri-Sun and boots meant Payless Pro Wings.)
Guitar. Bass. Drums. Verse. Chorus. Cruise. Control. Good. Time. Delight. That's what you're gonna get when you get into Dead Stars. This is indie rock rock ‘n roll, son. The rock gets doubled down for this one.
As of this writing, (11:04 am in the Year of the Yushityu 2007 Mimetic-Resolution-Cartridge-View-Motherboard-Easy-To-Install-Upgrade For Infernatron/InterLace TP Systems For Home, Office Or Mobile) Dead Stars will soon release their debut full-length “Slumber” for Old Flame Records (Potty Mouth + Lost Boy? + Gross Relations + more up-and-coming mostly grunge-y goodness).
Below is a song off that album in question. But there’s really no wondering about it at all. That album is gonna be good. I just know it.
The only thing I wonder about is stars. Because whether stars are busy living or dying up there, things can still shine mighty bright down here. It just depends on what you want to see. And I hope you remember that, man.
