The Star Feminine Band is a truly bad name, imho
Sounds exactly like a Go! Team song and it’s a lot of fucking fun. Star Feminine add a lovely little shot of joy to it.
picked up The Scene Between on CD today, as I don’t think I know it at all. Also hadn’t heard about this, somehow:
Parton expresses how he wished to avoid having any high-profile guest appearances on the album … “I figured that the last two records were getting overshadowed, at points, by namedroppy features" … Instead, he chose to scout out a collective of relatively unknown vocalists, a process which included putting out open calls on the Drowned in Sound message board.
they read like such spam posts
They do. I am Not Female but if I was, I don’t think I’d have responded to those ads!
Seeing them next March though, no idea whether they still have their DiS recruits…
Definitely not the bassist - they’ve been through a few but most recently changed during the Semicircle tour - they’ve had a few women playing bass over the years, but current one is a guy.
Only lead vocalist they’ve had is Ninja, so if they somehow recruited her through DiS then yeah, she’s still part of it.
forgot how much I liked Get Up Sequences
4 track EP version
Can’t think of another band where they’ve evolved so little stylistically and yet I still love them this much.
Got the new album today and yep, it sounds like The Go! Team. It’s great.
New album is deffo one of their best. Big step up from part 1
Enjoying the new one. They’ve really honed their sound and it shows.
Something quite funny about how they sound like nobody else really but their albums are all fairly similar. Unique yet predictable.
Incredible that they haven’t had a song called Gemini before this album
They were a lot of fun in Bristol tonight.
May have a spare for Edinburgh tonight in case any hidden Scottish lurkers pop up
Wouldn’t be able to confirm til after 6 as into the cinema in a moment, but throwing it out there
