You can now hear the first single from the forthcoming Shapes Stars Make album These Mountains Are Safe. “Le Dodici” is the first song to be released from the album and you can hear it here:  http://www.myspace.com/shapesstarsmake

Shapes Stars Make is an all-embracing indie band pulling ambience, post-rock guitar hooks, and romantic vocals from a galaxy of influences; but it’s the shimmery texture of their sometimes experimental music that sets them apart.  In fact, if Aurora Borealis had a soundtrack, Shapes Stars Make would be it.  Songs grow and diminish as if they are alive, evoking a living breathing being made of music and light.  This emotionally rich indie rock is heavy with post-rock influence and has been beautifully categorized as an ‘atypical condensation of genre techniques’ (The Neo-Surrealist Movement).  Absolute Punk has referred to Shapes Stars Make as ‘airy with gentle flickers that light up small and large.’  Michael Gooden, Jon Cook, and Zach Edwards give their music room to expand and contract organically which, with the help of producer John Congleton (Appleseed Cast, Explosions In The Sky), leads to the sweeping layered melodies that define Shapes Stars Make.
Shapes Stars Make will be releasing their debut full length with Dreamt Music in January 2010.
