“Newly peeled Panophonic loveliness, this one features a guest appearance from Paul Baker of Static Daydream. ‘what can I do’ be its name, demurred in the kind of dream draped dissolves that used to be the trademark trope of releases bearing the name Kitchens of Distinction upon their grooves, there’s something here that ought to in the first instance, catch the lobes of those folk fondly recalling the brief but very bright tenure of the Wilde Club family, here I’m very much thinking of a youthful Catherine Wheel, yet stand back and let the sound soak and what comes to fore is the irrefutable ghosting of a reflective Skyray sky signing in the vapour brushed grooves. Responsible for causing mild flutters of the heart around these here parts since appearing on our radar, latest from the Tom Lugo / Panophonic sound desk is the forlorn softly bruised fuzz drenched anthem ‘endlessly’, swooned in swallow diving shimmer tones that sour like a crestfallen Chapterhouse, this hurt honey rises to the bliss kissed subdued and statuesque arc of Toy, always a good thing don’t you find.” – Mark Barton of Losing Today

“I Can’t Come Home which introduces a less echoing fuzz to the forefront than much of the material previously featured, giving the piece a darker more melancholic air in which the listener can let their mind drift as the varying textures interweave creating a layering that on each play through allows new ideas to be discovered.”- Tim Whale at Emerging Indie Bands

“Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost is an ambient, haunting but somehow comforting and soul soothing collection of ten well crafted and well executed tracks.” – Thank you Joshua (J.Smo) Smotherman and MIDDLE TENNESSEE MUSIC for the great review.

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 driX and Exystence Music Blog for the review “Pain, loss, and fear have never been so beautiful as captured musically by Philly indie rockers Stellarscope. If you love albums by Joy Division and The Cure(in the early 80s) then you will love the mood of Standing in the Shadow of your Ghost.” Read the full review here http://exystence.net/blog/2017/08/06/stellarscope-standing-in-the-shadow-of-your-ghost-2017/
