Acclaimed band Trampled by Turtles continue to receive praise for their new album Stars and Satellites available now on Thirty Tigers/RED. Since forming in Duluth, Minnesota in 2003, Trampled by Turtles always felt they were able to attain an energy on stage that can’t be found in the studio. For Stars and Satellites, however, Trampled by Turtles didn’t want to simply try to recreate a live show. “We wanted to make a record that breathes,” explains Dave Simonett (guitar/vocals), “musically we wanted to step out of our comfort zone.” “You know how sometimes they say ‘less is more,’” notes Erik Berry (mandolin), “that’s what Stars and Satellites is about.”
“Supercharged songs with a hooky playfulness and white-knuckle power…” —Esquire
“Lit up and charged…four-part harmonies that are close to being crystalline.” —Daytrotter
