51 Bands, from all around the world, have joined their hearts & music together, to pay tribute to one of the most passionate music enthusiasts that the shoegaze community has ever known. This compilation, affectionately titled “For The Love of Chris Tressler”, is dedicated to the memory of this amazing man.

Chris Tressler was truly in a league of his own. He had a zeal for music that seemed almost as vital to him as the air in his lungs and the beat of his heart. His pursuit of new music, and desire to share that music with the world around him, was unparalleled. Chris was such a pillar of support for the bands that he loved! The shoegaze/dreampop community has definitely felt the loss of his selfless, devoted and positive presence.

Due to the fact that we want this music, and the memory of Chris, to reach as many people as possible, we have decided to make this comp available as a free download on bandcamp.

For any that would like to make a monetary donation, in memory of Chris, here is wonderful organization that encourages the creation of music & “provides musical instruments to underserved children, with a hunger to play”. This link allows us to make “dedication donations”, in honor of Chris: hungryformusic.org/make-a-dedication-donation/

Jonathan Sellers and Krissy VanderWoude would like to thank everyone who has been a part of this comp & helped us bring this vision to life.

Our deepest & most heartfelt sympathy extended to Chris Tressler’s family and friends. We hope that you will find comfort in knowing how loved he was. May his memory live on through this beautiful music!

Due to the overwhelming support, we may or may not have enough download credits to support free download through Bandcamp’s site. However, we have uploaded the entire comp onto this MediaFire link:

“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/

Thank you Moshville for the review of our latest record and for the Band of the Day pick. We are truly grateful. “Post-punk is a truly unique genre, mixing droning guitar riffs and quiet vocals to create an ethereal, dream-like wall of sound. Stellarscope, today’s Band of the Day, have seemingly mastered the ability to create such a wall of sound, with the Philadelphia-based duo producing music which manages to be explicitly post-punk, defining the genre through their newest release Standing in the Shadows of Your Ghost. ” Read the full review here https://www.moshville.co.uk/feature/botd/2017/06/band-of-the-day-stellarscope/

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

Thank you Stereo Stickman for the review!!!! Stellarscope’s “Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost offers audiences an intense array of explicitly human ideas, feelings and soundscapes. Beginning with the undeniably hard hitting Don’t Belong, the album is easily as heavy as it is emotional.” Read the track by track review here: http://stereostickman.com/reviews/stellarscope-standing-in-the-shadow-of-your-ghost/ #indierock #indiepop #postpunk #shoegaze #philadelphia #stellarscope #musicreview
