Startographers, an alternative rock band from Austin, Texas featuring members of Magnet School, Honeyrude, and Schatzi, will release their debut LP titled "Static Calls" on November 18, 2022 via Shifting Sounds. The new LP will be available on limited edition opaque Purple 12" Vinyl in N America, UK, Europe - plus an exclusive Japan release on classic black vinyl with bonus track by Stiff Slack Records. With an array of influences including indie rock, dream pop, post-rock, shoegaze, post-punk, and brit-pop, Startographers have a unique but also familiar sound that hearkens back to the Creation Records era of music from the early 90s. The songs are melodic and driving, vibrant and anthemic, with a sense of nostalgia, full of lush guitar textures and captivating vocal melodies, not to mention the arena sized hooks. Check out the first two singles released from the forthcoming LP below and make sure you check the album out in full when it drops on the 18th. Fans of Ride, Oasis, Swervedriver, Catherine Wheel and the like should find something to love in these new songs.
