I always forget what sounds so good about these guys and then when I play them I'm reminded but still can't describe it. They WILL make more great music one day, I still believe. In the meantime I find Secret Machines have a similar vibe on occasions.
(and apparently, it also doesn't support linebreaks.... awesome)
Anyways, to get back to the stella luna topic..... i'm sure you girls (and guys) have your reasons.... but to an outsider, the entire situation looks quite ridiculous: A newcomer band, with an entire arsenal or rare equipment, releases 4 songs, and instantly become a legend in the shoegazer/dreampop scene.... actually, they're so impressive, that almost 10 years later they still have more listeners, than most nowadays newcomer bands in the genre. The consequence? Nothing! The band doesn't even split up, but just engages in other hobbies besides of music..... legendary success and a museum of equipment.... for four songs.....
As i wrote, i'm sure you have your reasons - but to outsiders, it almost seems as if you - in like totally untrendy style - don't actually care about your success, support and tech.... it to outsiders looks as if you simple had a few awesome ideas, released them, and then moved on to other interests
