Stardeath and White Dwarfs

The first time I’d ever heard of Stardeath and White Dwarfs was when I received a promo copy of their debut album “The Birth.”  The cover art didn’t really appeal to me, but with a name like Stardeath and White Dwarfs, there was no chance I wasn’t going to listen to the record.  I loved it instantly!  The 40 minute album covers rock to dance music and is extremely experimental.  I’ve had it on high rotation ever since and I was delighted to find out they’d be opening for Tame Impala at Bowery Ballroom in New York on November 18, 2010.  Lead singer Dennis Coyne is related to Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips, so that outta tell you about both the music as well as their stage show.  Stardeath and White Dwarf utilized a projection screen and also had trippy lights flashing throughout their 40 minute set.  They played most tracks from “The Birth,” and though I met the band prior to the show and they mentioned they’d be playing a Pink Floyd song (as they covered the entire “Dark Side of the Moon” album with The Flaming Lips), they did not.  It didn’t matter.  The set was as experimental as their album and I loved it!  A video of the ultra funky “I Can’t Get Away” is coming soon as well as photos of my encounter with the band, so stay tuned!
