five bajillion thumbs up for movie monster!

...a thrilling summer rollercoaster of lyrical brilliance

The album, Movie Monster from the five piece Austin band was released last Tuesday, June 06th. Sound Team has created a old-school synth layered beauty, with Matt Oliver's vocals more prominent compared to ST's earlier works. For a first-timer, one can mistake ST as an old gem and not as a band that's still alive&kickin'. They lay down the dance beats in "Your Eyes Are Liars" making it a foolproof crowd pleaser. "Movie Monster" has a toned down feel and not as much noise as the others, but a smooth melody and lyrics that sticks. "Afterglow Years" whispers and gives the listener a wash of electric ambience in its grand entrance. "Handful of Billions" emits the epic feel of an Arcade Fire song, a band which ST played with along with The Walkmen. So go along and sink into the fantastic album, Movie Monster, you won't regret it.
