Well, here's one way to beat a leak. Montreal's STARS won't officially release their latest long-player, IN OUR BEDROOM AFTER THE WAR [ARTS & CRAFTS], until September 25. But, for the impatient amongst you, there is good news. You can purchase the album -- or songs from it -- right now by going [HERE].
Personally, at this early stage, I'm not liking IN OUR BEDROOM as much as I did SET YOURSELF ON FIRE, which was one of my favorite discs of 2005. I'm hoping this won't end up an '07 disappointment in the vein of THE NEW PORNOGRAPHERS' latest (or that first song from the upcoming RILO KILEY). I need my big hitters to step up. R.E.M., it's been 15 years since your last truly great album. RADIOHEAD, you're still my most beloved, but it's been 10 years since yours. So get cracking, dammit!
