Atari Star

Prayer & Pretend CD

The third full-length from Chicago's The Atari Star expands upon the sonic palette established in 2003's Dispelling The Myth Of Accurate Maps EP: dark, noisy indie rock with a sharp impressionistic edge to the lyrics and a penchant for soaring minor key melodies. Prayer + Pretend showcases nine new songs plus a cover of Shellac's "Copper."
 
"Bleak, understated and powerful...coasts through a vast sonic topography. Marc Ruvolo's wraithlike voice weaves through six tracks that are plaintive, fragile and hugely sad while leaden guitars undercut the quiet and awaken the dead." Magnet
