Superstar are sparse, smooth, sensual, when you hear Esther introducing Fine Wine you’d imagine a live performance at a contemporary art gala somewhere in Melbourne, very adult. Their sound is morose, and this duo does it simply well - an echoing guitar, a distant drum machine, a spatial synthpad and sublimely psychedelic vocals.
This Night People release has become a night owl tape of choice, having drifted asleep to The Softest Urge a number of times now. The Long Frond would be my pick, sounding like a shamanic meeting between Bardo Pond and Fabulous Diamonds.
If you feel that softest urge, then grab a copy for your evenings at home from Night People.
