Grant Hart – The Argument
In 2013, the legendary singing drummer and songwriter grant hart (Hüsker Dü) released the concept album (Domino Records), inspired by John Milton’s paradise lost and unpublished manuscript by william s. burroughs Lost Paradise. stargaze initiated the collaboration to realize the epic quality of the album by performing a selection of songs live with a semi-acoustic ensemble.
The Dodos: No Color / Carrier – with stargaze
In autumn 2013 the dodos released their fifth album Carrier (Polyvinyl), mostly characterized by Meric Long’s virtuous fingerpicking on the guitar and Logan Kroeber’s driving drums. Although primarily working as a duo, they’ve repeatedly incorporated instrumental parts in their compositions – strings, trombone, horn and vibraphone – as well as having worked with San Francisco’s Magik*Magik Orchestra. The Dodos and stargaze will present new arrangements ( by stargaze ) of songs from Carrier as well as No Color.
