First review of our new album “Shades of sadness and sorrow” by Sphere Music​. Album to be released March 3, 2015
“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.”

Under the Wire releases Everything Haunts MePosted on February 2, 2015 by BAXTER LABATOS Leave a commentBand: Under the WireAlbum: Everything Haunts Me.Songs: I am nothing/Oceans are none/Drifter now/Down/Black out/Melancholy/Self Medicated.What you can expect from every Under the Wired releases is the electricity that flows through each song. There is the freshness yet the nostalgic not to the great bands of the 80s. I like to imagine them as a band that continue to carry the torch of great music without sacrificing their credibility to the evil of mainstream pop.Everything Haunts Me is the new EP, which is their second, and contains 7 tracks. I am nothing has a mellow style with chilled beats. The fullness of the music is done by layering. Under the Wire is comprised of two people: Tom Lugo and Jason Ellis. I am nothing reminds me of old This Mortal Coil. Remember the 4AD project headed by Ivo Watts-Russell in the 80s? I am not sure if UTW have embraced the 4AD credo but I can sense a bit of that in this EP.Oceans are None is explosively beautiful. I haven’t heard something like this in ages. The only artists that come to mind are Peter Gabriel and early Sarah McLachlan. The beats are seductive. The vocals are really awesome. Like the first EP, the tunes from Everything Haunts Me showcase a distinct guitar style that shows its loyalty to the dream pop genre.Either it’s The Cure or Fiction Factory, Drifter now nods on these bands. Two thumbs up to the keyboards. And since I am not a lyrics guy I paid more attention to the sound effects than the stories behind the songs. But if you want to know what they are all about then I will tell you. They deal with either unrequited love, despair, loneliness, inner conflict-the stuff of Gothic rock. For some reason, Under the Wire makes depressing themes sound like Breakfast at Tiffany’s.There’s Down-a kind of suspense and moody tune in the vein of Siouxsie and the Banshees.  Blackout behind jangles with Bauhaus inspired chords and distorted drums. Melancholy has an ethereal style that reminds me of early Dead Can Dance and at times it’s Joy Division. Self medicated closes the EP and I think it is the most cinematic track in this EP.Under the Wire continues to challenge the status quo of music, as thesetwo musicians write and record tunes that you can never -and will never-hear again in alternative rock.

Neues von Tausendsassa Tom Lugo und seinen Mannen von Stellarscope: die haben nämlich gerade eine neue EP mit dem Titel Call me Destroyer rausgebracht. Die Jungs aus Philadelphia praktizieren Mucke, die gerne etwas rauer ausfällt, härter – schön schrammelig eben. Dabei scheuen sie sich auch nicht, mal ein wenig Sprechgesang mit verträumten Gitarren zu mischen (Is it me?) oder ein klitzekleines bisschen brachialer im Stile A Place to Bury Strangers und Co. nach vorne zu gehen (Killstealliedie). Oder halt ihre ganz eigene Art von Stellargaze, wie beim Song This Is Somethng New. Voila…

Wunderschön, oder? Die EP und den Longplayer von Stellarscope gibts digital und physikalisch direkt ab Werk unter

Und mehr wie immer bei MySpace und auf Tom’s Label

Und nicht vergessen! Tom Lugos großartiges Projekt Rock back for Japan unterstützen!!!

News from all trades Tom Lugo and his men from Stellarscope: namely, who have just released a new EP titled Call Me Destroyer brought out. The guys from Philadelphia Mucke practice which is more like a little rougher, tougher – just beautiful schrammel. They also are not afraid, sometimes a little chant to mix with dreamy guitars (Is it me?) or a tiny bit more brutal style A Place to Bury Strangers and Co. to go forward (Killstealliedie). Or hold her own way of Stellargaze how the song This Is New Somethng. Voila …

Beautiful, right? The EP and the album of Stellarscope are digital and physical plant directly under

And do not forget! Tom Lugo’s great project Rock back for Japan support! # comment-304
