Okay, this is one of my favorite finds of 2016, no doubt. Starchild with their self-titled debut album, are one of those bands that you wish you were in. Well, at least I do. I first encountered of Starchild when I was on the TwinEarthRecords website. I remember listening to two tracks “The Futurist” and “Wings” and I was completely blown away. When I told Ric Bennet – who owns that label – how much I liked what I heard, he shared with me that it was actually his band, meaning he played guitar in it and sang. That made it even more interesting.
‘Starchild’ is one of those records where words simply fail me to adequately describe it, or let alone, do an even remotely meaningful review on. However, I guess what I just said in term being a little envious and wishing that I could write and play music like that – in a band like that – pretty much sums up my admiration for this album and its makers.
