Seattle’s Star Party follow up their solid debut cassette Demo 2020 with the announcement of an LP split between Feel It and Tough Love. The first single out of the gate is the charging, gnarled fuzz pop of “Push You Aside.” Star Party, the duo of Carolyn Brennan and Ian Corrigan (Gen Pop, Vexx) recorded Meadow Flower over the course of 2021, imbuing the record with an immediacy that sets the doldrums of 2022 alight like a match to tinder. Having already professed an affinity for Shop Assistants with a cover on the debut EP, the band lean further into the ramshackle pop of their UK forbears, rolling in like-minded comparisons to The Flatmates, The Primitives, or Black Tambourine. “Push You Aside” comes with an ecstatic video animated and edited by Casey Hanson that adds a bit of cartoon chaos to the cut. The record finds its way onto shelves on March 11th.
