New Download from the Chinese Stars

SPIN Staff

Though their moniker is a self-professed nod to the 1980s "epidemic" of "grade school kids across America armed with throwing stars," the Chinese Stars are just as sharp and speedy as their namesake. "Drugs and Sunshine," injected into the Providence, RI quartet's sophomore full-length, Listen to Your Left Brain, courses through the air with crisp drums, frenetic guitar lines, and the elastic sneer of lead singer Eric Paul, whose contradictory voice somehow embodies an energetic apathy. Listen to Your Left Brain will fire its synapses March 20 on the Three.One.G imprint.
