6/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 18 November 2010
Man I'm picking 'em this week... OK, Trembling Blue Stars are another band I know nothing about so again, excuse my ignorance. Phil tells me they formed from the ashes of Field Mice adding a slightly more dance orientated/baggy sound to there previously ultra twee indie pop style. From what I can tell this is TBS's swan song so it's nice that Elefant records have gone to the trouble of compiling these two releases into one handsomely designed die cut, gatefold sleeve. Really into this trend for packaging CD's like little LP's... As an artist I'd be very grateful. Trembling Blue Stars are probably pretty chuffed too I reckon. Anyway, TBS dabble in the classic mid 80s style of c86 indie pop. I never really got into the whole Sarah Records/c86 sound, I was too busy listening to Kenny Loggins and Jan Hammer back in '86 but that's excusable, I was only seven. This is all tastefully executed stuff with more than a hint of St. Etienne, Ride and other early 90s faves coming to mind. Not my bag really but a must for any fans of the band.
