Stardeath and White Dwarfs are an Oklahoma band. Raised on the freaked out, psychedelic, sense assaulting music of Uncle Wayne’s band, The Flaming Lips, Stardeath has found its own path. Equally as influenced by The Dungeon Family as Crazyhorse, the band’s long anticipated new album “Wastoid” takes things to a new level. Tediously constructed over the past three years on the desolate plains of Oklahoma, the album follows the ups and downs of a life as raw as a place like this. Lyrically and musically deeper and darker than Stardeath’s debut, “The Birth,” Wastoid hits you right in the chest.
Although it has been a few years since the last Stardeath record, the band has been very busy writing songs with The Flaming Lips, not to mention Miley and Kesha, and recording on multiple Lip’s family recordings of Dark Side Of The Moon, Court Of The Crimson King, The Stone Roses first record, and SGT. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band. The band has also been busy honing its reputation as one of the best live bands around, touring with the likes of Tame Impala, The Flaming Lips, and Devo. You just gotta see them when they come to a city near you.
