“The Birth” by Stardeath & White Dwarfs

Album: The Birth
Artist: Stardeath & White Dwarfs

It may just be some cosmic accident, but the stars align and the universe listens when the Coyne family speaks. Stardeath & White Dwarfs are going to catch attention for being related to the Flaming Lips (Singer Dennis Conye being Wayne Conye’s nephew) and comparisons between the two groups will surely be made. But while Stardeath’s sound may be inspired by its older uncle, it manages to create an identity for itself.

The Birth marks the first full length for Stardeath & White Dwarfs. It embarks on a minimalistic, psychedelic fuzz laced trip. But it is not a trip in outer space, or a drug trip. But a trip of the individual rather than the whole. Tales of personal loss, discovery, and exploration of emotion are backed by a clean production and very well defined instrumentation. Each instrument takes up its own space, and never really overpowers any other musical element. Dennis Coyne’s voice is especially powerful, being able to stand out against a torrent of intergalactic star dust fired at light speed.

The Birth is like an observatory of the Self. Everything becomes so clear and understood in that moment, before it passes on with only the fading light as a memory. And one day that light will go black, but for those who were there to witness it they will tell you that it was a beautiful thing.
