Eleven tracks of pure musical reinvention and rebirth by these Providence, Rhode Island, ex-pats - orchestral in scope but punk at heart; forsaking ambience for drums; turning down the synths and pads and turning up the guitars and samples. Freshly inspired by relocation to Austin, Texas, Stars As Eyes composed these songs on piano and guitar (without completely ignoring samples), from minimal to psychedelic to IDM to krautrock to electro to Providence rock. It's a stellar change of pace from their debut CD Freedom Rock - heavier, thicker, more intense, yet cognizant of their emo-IDM roots. Songs like "The French Method" and "Suspension Days" contain a subtle, sustained beauty unequaled by their previous output, with melodies that would make Múm, To Rococo Rot or Boards of Canada proud. "Important Youth Movement" is a slice of inspired electro-kraut with off-kilter, deadly guitar stabs, pounding drums and searing synth lines that build to a fever pitch and land in a soothing bed of soft breaks, piano, and a lullaby of strings worthy of Aphex Twin. Like a third of Flying Saucer Attack and half of Autechre stuck in a rehab center with a computer.  * Mature sophomore effort from one of Tigerbeat6's most promising bands  * USA tour with Cex in 2ØØ1; ready for a 45+-date tour with Numbers, Cex  * Guitarrorist overtures with the shimmering musical textures fans know and love, along the lines of Boards of Canada, Mogwai, Tortoise, Marumaru, My Bloody Valentine, Isan, Aphex Twin, early Autechre, Flying Saucer Attack, and This Heat  * Strong indie rock and IDM appeal  * Supported with a large PR push, press servicing, college radio
