Hollow Stars - Neshama EP

 

Hollow Stars is the former side project (now full-time gig) of ex-Deerhunter guitarist Colin Mee. Mee left Deerhunter back in 2007 shortly after the band's breakthrough album Cryptograms was released. While I'm sure he doesn't want to be "that guy that used to be in Deerhunter" it's still worth mentioning because this record sounds nothing at all like his former band. Instead, Mee and co. have crafted a Middle Eastern influenced indie/space rock mash-up of sorts that does a good job of defying easy categorization. This EP is a nice snapshot of what Hollow Stars are capable of and I'm looking forward to future releases.
