about

Pat Hamilton, Patrick Hussey, Greg Stark, and Dan Sweigert continue their tradition of mind-bending prog that feels like a mechanical lava lamp of sound: swirling, chunky, funky, and fascinatingly strange.
The rhythm guitars are tough, the lead riffs fed through effects that let notes stretch and pop like gum. "629.3" pings between full-charge-ahead drums and wall-of-grit, grunge style guitar, flipping into falling-up-the-stairs piano, and Sweigert's melodic-yet-dissonant vocals. Movements are crisply stacked alongside one another—yet somehow, as it escalates, we're pulled into a centrifuge of sound.

about

Star Period Star Savannah, Georgia

Star Period Star just released their 1st LP on smoked vinyl "Daylight Spending Time". The band has returned to its use of "wobbletones", radical guitar tunings where the lower strings are tuned so low that they not only create micro-tonal chords, but the notes bend or wobble as they are played. Bob Drake (Thinking Plague/5uus) & Mike Hagedorn (Lovely Little Girls/Cheer-Accident) also appear. ... more

Track Name: 629.3
I cleaned this house and centralized the place
Got fingerprints into a data base
We make the rules, then break them if we must
The tapes are rolling for the public trust

I like the horses, but I think you know your place
My meals are paid for by the 50 states
You call it blackmail, but I like to call it leverage
Your secrets are the best tools of my trade

I stand behind the mirror with Clyde here by my side
You have your orders, the light’s left my eyes
Now be a good girl, put our history through the shredder
He who lives by the sword must die with her
Track Name: Dust Storm
When the dust storm comes
there will be no escape
kids will rub off the etchings
leaving charcoal on your grave

Won't go back to the factory
or go begging in the street
but the dust storm's trying
to blow the earth beneath my feet

Throw some blankets on the windows
stuff some towels in the doors
'cause the dust storm's comin'
to suck the air out of your pores

We all love to tell the story
as long as it always remains
just a page from history
remote as a dream of coming rain
Track Name: 629
I cleaned this house and centralized the place

You call it blackmail, but I like to call it leverage
Your secrets are the best tools of my trade

I stand behind the mirror with Clyde here by my side
You have your orders, the light’s left my eyes
Now be a good girl, put our history through the shredder
He who lives by the sword must die with her
