Stars - Sad Robots EP

Stars at Town Hall in Fall 2007

On September 1, Stars, one of my favorite bands of all time, released their Sad Robots EP. I wouldn't say the tracks are especially mind-blowing, but in traditional Stars fashion, the songs still move me in a certain way. I have to say that Stars is one of the few bands that actually make me feel emotion when I listen to their recorded music. With "Undertow," it's the beautiful bass line, coupled with the piano melody, with sprinkled lyrics (I love Amy Millan's voice). "14 Forever" is not very complex, but the melodies are simply beautiful and almost haunting.

I wasn't the biggest fan of In Our Bedroom, After the War, but I continue to listen to Stars for exactly the reasons why I care about this EP. I'm sure it's not surprising that "Elevator Love Letter" is the most-listened track on my iTunes.

Stars returns to New York on September 20. Purchase the EP here.

I love Amys voice too. If I could choose just one voice I would like to have, it would be hers.

I had no idea who Stars was before reading this post, and now I have three new favorite songs. Thank you, Mimi.
