Boomkat Product Review:
The Stars are Rhode Island warriors Steve Ferrari and Craig Four with able contributions from Marumari and DJ Eightlegs. Their musical journey traverses Can and Neu fuelled motorik landscapes on Golden Experiences. If Tortoise more fully realised their electro potential over their trademark acoustic fusions, you would be getting close. In places to us reminiscent of Herbie Hancock of Future Shock vintage, especially on Project Famous, and primetime Material. Elsewhere the primal bass and puttering polyrhythms show affinities with the Berlin massive. On tracks like Tell Her I Don't Care you have some of the most tender and beautiful music to emerge from the States in a long while. Overall the Stars have a sound all their own, familiar but refreshingly new and alive. Freedom Rock personified. Essential.
