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 The RingMaster Review for the detailed review of Stellarscope’s ‘Standing in the shadow of your ghost’ “Evocatively invasive and seductive from its first to last breath, Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost is the new album from US outfit Stellarscope. Shaped by rousing yet darkly suggestive rhythms and driven by emotion strapped melodies within cinematically hued atmospherics, the release consumes as it ignites ears and imagination from pretty much its opening and seemingly intimate contemplation of “the pain of loss and the fear of an uncertain future.””

“Nostalgia Kisses The Future with Shades of Sadness and Sorrow by Stellarscope
-Yup, nothing could represent the power of indie music that Philadelphia’s own Stellarscope. They are back with a new album called Shades of Sadness and Sorrow. They are improving on the sound that defines them as a band: a combination of 80’s post punk, dream pop and Gothic atmosphere.”- Baxter Labatos Sphere Music http://spheremusic.me/2015/02/25/nostalgia-kisses-the-future-with-shades-of-sadness-and-sorrow-by-stellarscope/

Stellarscope- Wasted Time EP


Stellarscope – Wasted Time EP
November 26, 2004 by lkilcrease

Stellarscope
Wasted Time EP
What is it about the sound of crashing waves that is so relaxing? The experience is entirely destructive, chaotic, and most of all raucous, yet one can hardly help but feel awash in serenity merely sitting and listening to the pounding surf. Well, the veteran space-pop group Stellarscope has managed to plug directly into this sensation with their latest offering, the Wasted Time EP.
In Wasted Time, the folks in Stellarscope play space pop driven slowly forward by bass and drums as the guitars, vocals, and “space violin” build a massive wall of chaotic yet tranquillizing noise. The group borrows heavily and unabashedly from genre definer My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless, right down to the blurry cover art. Singer, Tommy Lugo’s vocals are distant and mournfull, often harkening back to the late Ian Curtis.
The first track on this EP opens rather deceptively with a bassline cruising at a brisk pace and transforming into a Joy Division-esque song containing what could very well be the only decipherable words on the EP, as Lugo can be heard muttering “Maybe today is a good day to die.” The next five tracks on the EP are one wall of sound after another, and even though none of them stand out particularly in my mind, they really don’t have to.
While Stellarscope’s Wasted Time probably won’t be likely leave a lasting impression on the listener, the 24 minutes of gentle swagger and aimless bliss it induces make up for this in spades. You’ve definitely got to be in the right mood to enjoy this type of music, but when that mood strikes you and you’ve got a half-hour to kill, Stellarscope’s Wasted Time is surely a stone-cold lock.
