If you take a look at Stellarium self-description at their bandcamp, you will see "Fuzz, Rock N' Roll, Shoegaze, Psyche, Rage and a whole lotta love...". That is a very very rare occasion where a band's self-description corresponds to what you REALLY listen (yeah, in red bold italic letters, screaming like hell), and all the expectations you feed while reading it. Hailing from the distant Singapore, Stellarium consists of a three-piece (four at the live concerts, as it looks like) who dedicates themselves to build fuzzy-fueled dark-than-the-deeperst-sea songs in a stellar level of quality. Of course, the first thing that comes to our minds is the legacy of the turbulent early years of Jesus And Mary Chain, but they do not use the Reid brothers as a holy role model, but as a framework which indicates where they are heading and not cause any black nite crash (sic). Comparisions between the early Telescopes and current fuzzy fellows such as A Place to Bury Strangers, The KVB, Ringo Deathstarr, Screen Vinyl Image and Ceremony are also valid but, once again, keep in mind it is only for the sake of an analogy, since Stellarium has its own face, flesh and bones.  

Therefore, you can find their bandcamp right below, where you can download their albums at the beloved name-your-price system. I deeply recommend to you their self-titled work, from 2009, whose a couple of songs were featured in mixtape #4 and mixtape #9. I consider them as one of the most talented and ear-ripping bands of the new generation, which means that if you have any taste for microphony, Stellarium must become one of your favorite cup of tea.

enjoy! (bandcamp)
