PRE-ORDER THE LP HERE:
Bedrooms of the Nation, the second full-length album from Vancouver’s Shimmering Stars, was recorded by the band at the Garage Mahal in Kamloops, mixed by legendary Vancouver engineer Colin Stewart, and mastered by Dan Emery at Black Matter Mastering in Nashville, TN. Lying at the intersection of timeless pop, experimental soundscapes and punk sensibilities, Bedrooms of the Nation will be released digitally on August 13th in Canada and will be released on Almost Musique in Europe.
Exploring themes of social breakdown, anomie, dislocation, and the aspiration to find meaning in a culture of violent individualism; the album can be at times disarmingly bleak, but leaves room for optimism, particularly in closing number “I Found Love.”
