New signing to the Summerhouse label, Belgian band Showstar, released their new album <.> (say 'Dot') on Tuesday 8 May, 2007. The album is a stunning UK debut from the five-piece, who have built up a dedicated following in northern Europe through regular touring and a series of singles on Belgian label Anorak Supersport. The music is classic hard-edged pop with bittersweet vocals, scything guitars and glorious melodies. It's guitar-based pop/rock with a wholly fresh sound, moving between the massively joyous noise of songs like Mad On Your Sister and Day By Day and intricate, delicate guitar, keyboard and percussion patterns on tracks such as Dan and Stereo Songs. The album covers a whole soundworld of moods within its ten songs, produced with crystalline precision by in-demand London-based producer Gareth Parton. Gareth has worked with the Rakes, the Futureheads, Placebo, the Beta Band, the Polyphonic Spree, the Go!Team, Death In Vegas and many others. The album was recorded at Polysound Studio (Brussels) and Fortress Studio (London) over 25 days. Showstar have supported acts like Stereophonics, The Thrills and Ash
