Stars On Fire - Blue Skies Above

Jigsaw
(PZL159-2: 708527190357/PZL159-3)
Release date: 6/14/2019
Genre: Indiepop



Based in Seoul (but originally hailing from California), Stars On Fire is the brainchild of a fellow named Cristoph Mark, who I recently found out was a member of Ampersand, a short-lived band who released an amazing mini-album on Fantastic Records back in 2000 that you probably never heard (but really should). This debut release from Cristoph's new project is a hard-to-define batch of songs that are jangly, but not quite janglepop; noisy, but not actually noisepop; and dreamy, but not really shoegaze. Heck, even the production style is simultaneously lo-fi and well-recorded! The guitars are shambling and distorted, the vocals are morose (but not over-bearing) and the songs themselves are pretty great. This is a cool EP that kinda comes from left-field and is definitely well worth checking out!
