For Starflyer 59, longevity and quality go hand in hand. Since 1993, California’s finest shoe gazers have been churning out lush masterpieces that seem to only improve with time. From albums like ‘Gold’ (1995) to ‘I Am The Portuguese Blues’ (2004), the group has remained not only captivating but increasingly innovative as well. Jason Martins haunting vocal display perfectly accompanies the atmospheric mood set by the dreamy guitar lines, creating a sort of glimmering magic that could only come from one of Tooth & Nail’s most gifted. Starflyer returns in 2008 with Dial M, one of the most personal and lyrically moving records in the band’s history. With careful attention paid to building lush layered songs around driving rhythmic acoustics and vulnerable lyrics, Dial M has become an instant standout in the Starflyer catalogue.
