Stellarscope’s latest release, ‘Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost’, is infused with what could easily be found in your early 80’s alternative scene with bands like The Sisters of Mercy, Joy Division, Bauhaus and The Jesus and Mary Chain. They’ve masterfully taken bits and pieces from the Post Punk era and brought them forward into today’s realm…..

Many thanks Tom Lugo and Stellarscope for taking the time for Torched Magazine!

Thank you Matthias and Mescaline Injection for the review of Stellarscope’s “Standing in the shadow of your ghost” #shoegaze #postpunk #indierock#philadelphia #stellarscope

Rough translation:

“The Philadelphia Boys celebrate on their album an exciting and above all working mixture. They mix the sweeping guitar width of the shoegaze with angular post-punk beats and interweave them temporarily with elements from the indie and alternative rock. The muted, melancholic singing does the rest to support the shoegaze effect. In the end, perhaps, a little bit of grasping parts are missing, which stick in the ear and do the right thing; who does not need something like that, can enjoy an almost unconventional, atmospheric album.”

Thank you The Ark of Music for the kind words!!! “Having listened to countless acts as a music critic, I can safely announce that a tasteful amount of contrast is always key to producing a great body of work. That said, abstract in its composition—yet intentional in its mood and message—veteran indie-rockers Stellarscope have created that contrast masterfully in Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost. The group is to be commended for finding the courage to continually evolve and expand as artists.

“Stellarscope are on undeniable form with this release and as the album continues they proceed to dazzle with craftsmanship honed over two decades of making music that draws influence from psych and space-rock, pre and post-punk, songs that contain soaring melodies and crashing guitar pyrotechnics within the space of a single verse. Never ones to merely repeat themselves, each track on Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost shows a different aspect of Stellarscope and their continuously evolving sound.” Read the full review here http://www.adequacy.net/2017/06/stellarscope-standing-shadow-ghost/

GET IT TODAY! “Stellarscope fuses rock, post-punk and neo-psychedelia all while maintaining strong melodic sensibilities for an exciting musical experience that will please underground niche audiences and invite new alt-audiences looking for something edgier and more direct than typical poetic, alt-rock. Stellarscope has found their forte in songs like “Only Strangers Now” that pulse to your core, rip solos out like metal on glass and deliver plenty of direct, raw angst to chew on.”- Indie Spoonful
