Stars - The Five Ghosts and a Giveaway!

Wasted Daylight

Stars’ newest album, The Five Ghosts, brings the expected narrative of romantic tragedy as one would expect, with songs titled as ‘Dead Hearts’ and ‘I Died So I Could Haunt You,’ and their usual, down-tempo melodramatic new wave sound.  The album is a bit more glum than some of the previous efforts, but tracks such as  Wasted Daylight bring the album to a height that complements the more gloomy tracks on the album.  Despite what might seem like a drawback to the album has some interesting moments and lyrically and vocally are really well done.

To top this off, I’m giving away a pair of tickets to see Stars with Wild Nothing and a meet-and-greet with the band here in Boston at the House of Blues on September 23rd.  You can enter by leaving a comment, RT this tweet, or leaving a comment on the facebook page.  I’ll pick a winner next monday
