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.

Reverberations

Album Reviews
The extraordinarily prolific Tommy Lugo has recorded no less than 9 albums under one guise or another. Stellarscope is his shoegazing pseudonym but despite the high work-rate it shows no signs of a flagging talent. In fact, just the opposite, ‘Reverberations’ is a clear development in songwriting following on from 2004’s ‘Fingerpaint The Colour Of Sound’. Whereas previously Lugo opperated in the Spiritualized/Ride margins of FX-rock, the space-rock has been replaced by spaces which means the music is allowed to breathe. All the qualities are there in first song ‘Alma’ as the fragments of guitar noise disappear into vapour trails. The slowed-down drums and ambient sounds of ‘Dominio’ are on a par with Breathless’ ‘Blue Moon’ recordings whilst the sampled voices and chilled-out tune of ‘Universe’ completes a cracking start to the album. Further on, the beauty of a Cocteau Twins instrumental is captured on ‘Circles Are None’. Another example of why the shoegazing scene is alive and as well as ever.
