Philly's chamber-poppers Buried Beds return with a new LP, In Spirit, lead by stirring single, "Stars". A breezy guitar progression, accented with existential universalist lyrics, "like stars above us, we are all on fire", the arrangement eventually gives way to a big, baroque breakdown. Packing a piano peel-off that cascades down on the song's bridge, "Stars" finds a sense of identity and power in this middle movement. The band proceeds to unwire this collapse before rewiring it for one last dose of the song's memorable chorus.
For New Yorkers, the band plays Rockwood Music Hall this evening.
