“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/

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.
