We always expect something special to resonate from an encounter with Stars, the veteran Montreal outfit lead by Torquil Campbell and Amy Millan. Specializing in an emotive and endearing slice of electro rock, the band lays claim to a sprawling, five album catalogue...each effort bringing with it the powerful potential to define a moment, freezing time and space, for better or for worse, so that the past can one day haunt and guide the listener in times of need.
Our latest brush with the band came under a vivid wash of color at always electric New York hotspot, Le Poisson Rouge earlier this Summer. In a performance weve already shown you, the band came to town this past summer to rally loyal devotees 'round their newest effort The Five Ghosts, presenting the album track by track during the first half of their concert.
What we didnt show you was the enthralling second set that followed that performance. "Your Ex-Lover Is Dead ", "Take Me To The Riot ", "Elevator Love Letter ": these are the songs the adoring audience knew, the ones they forked their hard earned dollars over to hear, the ones that, like we mentioned before, have been following them around with their sentimental, sonic tendencies for more than a few years. If for some reason you havent felt the weight of these songs before? Consider this your first encounter with the aspirational power that is Stars. David Pitz
