Stars vs. Pitchfork

Monday, October 15th, 2007

For those who know Stars, number 6 on KWUR charts last week, you may have read the Pitchfork review of their latest album, In Our Bedroom After the War. If not: Pitchfork Stars. It got a 7.4 – I know that’s what you’re all wondering anyways. Stars apparently wasn’t too pleased with Mr. Ryan Dombol’s opinion, because Torq Campbell responded (Torq’s response) vehemently, to say the least. I guess the war’s not quite over for Stars. However, I think most will agree that too much of the consensus regarding indie music is laid upon their smug shoulders. Anyways, Torq seems a bit mad, but isn’t that what pop musicians are supposed to be like?
