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/

51 Bands, from all around the world, have joined their hearts & music together, to pay tribute to one of the most passionate music enthusiasts that the shoegaze community has ever known. This compilation, affectionately titled “For The Love of Chris Tressler”, is dedicated to the memory of this amazing man.

Chris Tressler was truly in a league of his own. He had a zeal for music that seemed almost as vital to him as the air in his lungs and the beat of his heart. His pursuit of new music, and desire to share that music with the world around him, was unparalleled. Chris was such a pillar of support for the bands that he loved! The shoegaze/dreampop community has definitely felt the loss of his selfless, devoted and positive presence.

Due to the fact that we want this music, and the memory of Chris, to reach as many people as possible, we have decided to make this comp available as a free download on bandcamp.

For any that would like to make a monetary donation, in memory of Chris, here is wonderful organization that encourages the creation of music & “provides musical instruments to underserved children, with a hunger to play”. This link allows us to make “dedication donations”, in honor of Chris: hungryformusic.org/make-a-dedication-donation/

Jonathan Sellers and Krissy VanderWoude would like to thank everyone who has been a part of this comp & helped us bring this vision to life.

Our deepest & most heartfelt sympathy extended to Chris Tressler’s family and friends. We hope that you will find comfort in knowing how loved he was. May his memory live on through this beautiful music!

Due to the overwhelming support, we may or may not have enough download credits to support free download through Bandcamp’s site. However, we have uploaded the entire comp onto this MediaFire link:

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.

“Stellarscope are on undeniable form with this release and as the album continues they proceed to dazzle with craftsmanship honed over two decades of making music that draws influence from psych and space-rock, pre and post-punk, songs that contain soaring melodies and crashing guitar pyrotechnics within the space of a single verse. Never ones to merely repeat themselves, each track on Standing In The Shadow Of Your Ghost shows a different aspect of Stellarscope and their continuously evolving sound.” Read the full review here http://www.adequacy.net/2017/06/stellarscope-standing-shadow-ghost/
