I’ll be brief because you try searching (with limited time to allot) for information on a band named Stars and scroll through every constellation, country band, any song title with stars in it. I think I even saw the Starland Vocal Band in there. Even narrowing the search, bah — on to the music, I say!

Stars is an indie band which I believe was originally formed in Toronto, moved on over to New York for a bit and settled in Montreal. Or the reverse. Is it really important actually? What is important is the music which I have enjoyed any of their songs that I have heard from their latest release of this year, In Our Bedroom After the War. I believe this is also on my list to download and perhaps will be on yours as well…or not.

Listen to some tunes on their MySpace and then take a look at the video for Take Me To The Riot (which should be played as I awaken each morning to what my young son has in store as we get ready for work/school):

Have a great weekend.


Psst: There’s a laugh riot going on over at Humor-blogs.com.

ooooh, i lovelovelove this song! great spin, dearest and most delightful of DJ’s! i can’t believe you managed to pull this one off, what with that Unfortunate Illness and your crazy schedule. Take Me to the Riot?? girlfriend, you LIVE the “riot” each and every day!

\,,/(^^)\,,/ riot on, Lampsha!

This album almost made my Top 20. There are some great songs on it including the one you posted, but it just didn’t stick like their others. I particularly love their “Set Yourself On Fire” album.

Comment by Howard

I come dressed in the proper gear, Snupp – it’s all the difference ๐Ÿ˜‰ Rock on and enjoy! XOX

Howard, I’ll check that out a little further. Though I think I like the more rock driven direction they seem to have taken so I’m a fan of this one.

And what I didn’t have time to type in the post – they do wear their Smiths influence on their arm, which works for me.

That was so pretty. Can always count on you
to find good music. My new musical inspiaration

Comment by pia

Pia, I thought so too. I’m blushing (or is that my fever back?). Or both. That I could inspire you in any way – my work here is done ๐Ÿ™‚

Sidenote: Funny, the band/singer that I originally wanted to feature today reminded me of you in that if you ever make a movie from your book (which all will happen), I think the song would be perfect in it. But I couldn’t find the song and time was short so…

Very nice. Sampled the music on their My Space page – lots of good stuff. Another excellent find DJ. Feel better.

Comment by BoBo

Kind of an 80s sound, huh? Nice and, as always, great post.

Comment by Walela

Thanks Bobo, I’m trying to.

Walela, yeah and I’m not always a fan of an 80’s sound made today, but I like this. Ah – go on.

To all – hope your week starts off gently.

Comment by DJ LAMPSHA

I like too…softer than I expected though…can’t always judge a rocker by his look.
Nice, I like it a lot!

Comment by Penguin

Watched this really late, but I loved it. These days it seems like there’s never enough time to do it all. Hope you’re feeling better. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to help
with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good
success. If you know of any please share. Appreciate it!
