STARDEATH AND WHITE DWARFS

The Birth

2009-06-22

There seems to be some Flaming Lips influence on this full-length debut from Oklahoma psych rockers Stardeath and White Dwarfs. How could there not be, when lead singer Dennis Coyne is Wayne Coyne's nephew and three members of this quartet were Lips roadies? This album features heavy guitars (The Birth), loud organ (The Sea Is On Fire), and nice production. The single, "New Heat", is the weakest song on this. Better choices might have been the quiet, Yes-like prog/rock of "Country Ballad" or the rocker "The March". Rebecca Ruth
