Release Date:04/01/2016;Notes:Limited 180gm heavyweight colored vinyl LP pressing housed in original reproduction artwork plus an insert featuring Part 1 of an extensive interview with the band by Dave Segal. Medical Records' celebration of 1990's seminal works on the famous Too Pure label continues with the long overdue reissue of 1993's The Stars Are So Big... by Birmingham, England's very own Pram. On this album, they were joined by a trumpeter on the recording as well which further diversified the sound. The album starts with ‘Loco’ which is a rhythmic affair overlaid with monotonous noisy guitar parts accented by Rosie's low key vocals whose lyrics then to elaborate topics such as depression and the darker memories of childhood. From the opening noisy track, the listener is immediately hypnotized by the beautifully percussive second track with beautiful overlaid polyrhythms and eerie bending and creaking sounds filling the voids. On The second side is the epic ‘In Dreams You Too Can Fly’ clocking in at 16 minutes with organ drones, free-form jazz trumpet, and other subtleties. The closing track ‘Cape St. Vincent’ again mesmerizes with its multi-layered difficult to identify percussion perfectly accompanied by Rosie's almost childlike vocals sneaking behind the melody. Pram were an absolute wonder to see performing live says just about anyone who was lucky enough to have been at those shows. For fans of the legendary Too Pure Sound and the bands that forged that scene (Stereolab, Laika, Long Fin Killie, etc.), this is crucial material.
