Music A.M. A Heart and Two Stars
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Quatermass
Be excited for this post-rock supergroup, whose hefty dub bottom end comes courtesy of Mapstation/To Rococo Rot's Stefan Schneider and whose thrills are delivered by former Long Fin Killie vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Luke Sutherland. Sutherland's silken vocals and studio prowess made his distinctive former band a too-soon-for-their-time anomaly; this time around, he makes sure A Heart and Two Stars is a standout in the crowded realm of mellow, vocal electro-rock. Nothing's excessive here-new sounds really sound new and everything works together to create a fully formed whole. Perfect, just like music in the A.M.
