UPC A Barcode: 827170 494664 Releasedate: 10.06.2013 Format:DoLp, including download code Tracklisting: A1: No Life In This Ghost Town B1: To Get Further B2: O Suomi C1: The Loss Of Breath C2: Appointments D1: Dreams May Never D2: All Over You STAREAWAY is Markus Guentner from Regensburg, of Kompakt- and Ware-fame, and Heiko Badje from Hamburg, the man behind saudade-driven pop-band La Grande Illusion. Exploring the possibilities of combining Guentners critically acclaimed adventures in ambient scapes and Badjes melodies and distinctive singing, their track “Baghira", as an early result, was selected on Kompakts “Pop Ambient 6″ compilation in 2005. Their first EP as STAREAWAY, called “Learn How To Love Me", was released on Hamburg-based label Couldn.t Care More in 2011 including a remix by deep house icon Osunlade crossing all borders, yet feeling so natural, and the somewhat timeless electronic pop reference “Unwise". Now STAREAWAY come up with their first album “No Life In This Ghost Town” (again on Couldn.t Care More); seven sketches between song and track deliberately carved from a shimmering wall of electronic sound by guitars, spiritualized voices and subtle melodies. It.s caressing and thoughtful, but there is also a darkness that makes you shiver. Glowing embers in far away windows. STAREAWAY combine a vision of sound with multitudes of micro-organisms which take turns no one can forsee. And what may appear as a mere coincidence is in fact a concentrated search. They are seekers of the things lying underneath. STAREAWAY’s “No Life In This Ghost Town” is mastered by Rafael Anton Irisarri. It will be available as Double Vinyl (+ Download-Code) and, of course, digitally. Layout by JL Prozess (Markus Guentner), artwork by Claudia Kugler.
