debs: (Falling in love with each second song)
Once upon a time, I asked Keram Malicki-Sanchez for music recommendations. He sent me back a list and at the very top of that list was the Canadian band, STARS, specifically their debut album, Nightsongs. This is one of the many bands that KMS introduced me to that I now love, and while our association ended on a less than satisfactory note, I will always be grateful for his musical guidance.

STARS has what is best described as an electro-pop sound, but the intricacies of their melodies, the poetry of Torquil Campbell's lyrics and the exquisite fragility of the vocals save them from being lumped in with the likes of Gaga and her less intellectual cohorts. This is smart pop and I rate the band up with Sigur Rós in terms of creativity and listenability.

I have many favorite STARS songs, but I chose this one from their most recent release, The Five Ghosts, because it best expresses how I'm feeling these days.
