Starsailor - Love Is Here (Capitol) + Date: 01.08
A voice this unique cannot be ignored for long, especially when it comes from an incredibly young, talented, and intelligent man and is accompanied by an equally young, talented, and intelligent band. Starsailor's radical departure from their classical training at a prestigious music school sounds absolutely nothing like punk, but embraces the same simplicity and independence of punk. And yet this album is sensitive, emotional, and refreshing. — Emily Stong
