Open to the Sun – THE STARGAZER LILIES: Lost (Graveface, 2017)

LostAunque la propia banda no quiere que LOST (Graveface, 2017) se convierta en su tercer álbum de manera oficial, lo cierto es que es álbum contiene los elementos necesarios y la unidad ideal para ser considerado como tal.
No son STARGAZER LILIES una banda con un gran recorrido temporal, pero su sonido es absolutamente coherente y su trayectoria realmente deliciosa. Navegan a gusto entre las aguas más pausadas del Dream-Gaze aderezando el conjunto con jugosos toques del mejor Fuzz.
LOST es un disco en el que recopilan canciones que se les han ido quedando sin editar por el camino (en la era digital es lo más normal). Graveface Records les ha dado unidad y ha publicado este “tercer” álbum hasta el momento en que la banda quiera dar el paso a descubrirnos nuevos momentos mágicos.

“Lost” is a collection of songs which our public has grown to love over the years but we’ve never released on physical format. We have wanted to release a vinyl album of these songs for some time and are also including new tracks never heard before. This is a special limited edition release (NOT ALBUM #3). We are also hoping to help raise money to continue touring (including infantile stages of the planning of EU in Spring of 2017) and also help fund the remaining recording of album #3″ (Band)

Paisajes y Figuras – THE STARGAZER LILIES: Door to the sun (Graveface Records, 2016)

Door to the Sun

Con este Door to the sun, THE STARGAZER LILIES consiguieron llegar a una pequeña cumbre: a la emoción de lograr la cima del Shoegaze más emocional, ambiental y psicodélico que podamos encontrar en nuestros días. Todo un manual sobre cómo emocionarnos a base de languidez sensual, densidad sonora, voces susurrantes y distorsiones diabólicas. 
Un grandísimo monumento al Shoegaze que tiene su continuidad en este año en curso.

“Ex-Soundpool brain trust Kim Field and John “Cep” Ceparano return with Door to the Sun, their second offering under the Stargazer Lilies banner. As first heard on 2013’s We Are the Dreamers, their particular brand of shoegaze is as murky as a bog filled with expired psychedelics. If anything, the rays of kaleidoscopic sun that shone through the emptier spaces of their debut are fewer and farther between on their follow-up. With Los Angeles-based drummer Tammy Hirata now onboard, the sound they deliver is massive, extremely dense, and frequently difficult. Slowly exhaling its hot breath is opener “Golden Key,” one of the album’s more structured and accessible tracks. Ceparano‘s lonesome squalls of ambient guitar tone wail like a wayward wind as Field‘s airy and mostly unintelligible voice dances across the top like a tumbleweed. Comprised of eight fairly lengthy tracks,Door to the Sun is a highly cerebral set where tumult and anxiety share quarters with — and usually dominate — their cousin radiance. “Drive” feels like a four-minute slow-motion car wreck where shards of harmonic beauty spill out of its shattered windows. A heavy layer of menace rolls like tank treads underneath the oddly sweet vocal melodies of “When with You” suggesting hidden powers and motives. “Personal Autumn” — whose title seems like it must have been generated by a dream pop/shoegaze song algorithm — contains some distant verses mostly blanketed by a harsh pastiche of what could be heavily-treated leaf blowers and rotting Hal Blaine drum patterns. Aside from the underlying impression of threat that seems to pervade nearly every song, Door to the Sun plays out like a fairly standard, if exceedingly heavy shoegaze album. Hearing or understanding the Lilies‘ lyrics is out of the question, as is any real semblance of standard pop structure, but in the parlance of one of rock’s vaguer subgenres, it seems like they’ve succeeded” (All Music)

Gafas de colores – STARGAZER LILIES: Door to the sun (2016)

Densidad, trallazos emocionales, guitarras a volúmenes insanos y composiciones cien por cien shoegazers. La música de Stargazer Lilies transcurre mansamente por las orillas del género más justamente reivindicado de los últimos tiempos. Gran disco.
