Living Under the Radar es el nuevo disco de la veterana banda shoegaze/experimental Stellarscope y marca el más reciente capítulo evolutivo de la banda en sus 11 años de su existencia. Aunque han logrado encontrar un sonido particular, impulsado por la voz del Tommy Lugo, se podría describir como Pink Floyd en sus inicios o Radiohead sin el reciente comercial frosting. s=Entre las canciones más sobresalientes está “Inside Out”, “Summer Handbook”, “Our Last Dance” y “Deception in the World”, un elaborado tema de casi nueve minutos que corre la gama creativa de la banda. En una era de bandas desechables y canciones olvidables, es bueno ver que bandas como Stellarscope aún se mantienen en sus convicciones de buena instrumentación y composición para crear una joya sicodélica como Living Under the Radar. TRANSLATION Living Under the Radar is the new disc by the veteran shoegaze/experimental band Stellarscope and it marks the most recent evolutionary chapter of the band in it’s 11 year existence. Although they have found their own unique sound, driven by Tommy Lugo’s vocals, you could describe it like Pink Floyd in their early days or Radiohead without the recent commercial frosting. The most excellent songs are “Inside Out”, “Summer Handbook”, “Our Last Dance”, and “Deception in the word”, an elaborate track of almost nine minutes which showcases the band’s entire creative spectrum. In an era of disposable bands y easily forgotten songs, it’s good to see that bands like Stellarscope are still grounded in their convictions of good instrumentation and composition to create a psychedelic jewel like Living Under the Radar.
