PRESENTING JAMIE STARS STORYLAND B SIDES






I find it useful to state the obvious. Jamie Stars Storyland "B Sides" doesn't match the "B sides" criteria. What we hear are deep, fresh sounds merging catchy melodies and shocking twists. Although emancipated in June 2012, "B Sides" are "Emergency" leftovers from 2007 after Jamie's band The Casanova Playboys broke up. "Echelons" stands proud as the album focal and "Be Good" buzzes raw feel good indie-rock meets space ship adventures. "Alone", a poignant electro ballad shines like castles in the air and "Loud Aquarium" is exciting insanity. If you're up for surprises and love colorful, interesting music, Jamie Stars Storyland new album "B Sides" is for you.

EMERGENCY CD REVIEW







"Emergency" is pure happening musical genius encounters period. I may have had a little wine but the energy still miraculously coincides with the music, a major plus in the world of den listeners. Breathtaking vocals, distinct melodies, explosive sounds, unpredictable occurrences surrounds electro-pop group Jamie Stars Storyland first album "Emergency". I have been asking deep questions lately. I don't care if you're just coming off the boat, "Emergency" is a must hear! I'd plug it in right now and get your boost for the day. Jamie Stars Storyland "Emergency" recorded in 2007 is full of powerful emotions, incredible, romantic singing and hook after hook of electronic beats, buzzy synths and counter melodies. "When it's Over" is by far the best song on the record and "Scepter" comes close as far as presence. "Can You Relate Now?" invokes great energy and "Kaliedo" is exciting and fast rock n roll leaving you thirsty for more. "Juicer", a frantic rave thriller ripping your insides from the start takes you on a 'dance revolution' kind of good time, so don't lie to yourself. It may take a little time to settle after you hear this album. It will leave you with a burning desire to live life again or throw it all in the garbage. It is fully up to you so in closing, Jamie Star takes us on a journey via ambient, colorful keyboards, deep lyrics and screaming guitars.

LISTEN TO THE FULL EMERGENCY ALBUM






Impressionistic, a futuristic sound that embodies melody and drive. Or maybe I'm not on the right mood at the moment. Still, this is an answer to those people who have lost the feeling of danger and darkness in electronic pop rock, because this band is truly beyond light. Far beyond. Call it Teen Wolf meets an old school basketball game for Sega if you will. Characteristic vocals are what it takes to make one stand out alone. You've got that going on. I like the electronic edge. Well done. I'm feeling a little Depeche Mode that's been taken out of the oven too soon. Great wall of synths. Reminds me of the 80's mixed with Transylvania. Almost like a vintage video game soundtrack.

LOOK OUT FOR JAMIE STARS STORYLAND IN YOUR TOWN






Still remember the silver boyhood fantasy days, impending green dreams with grey skies leading into the musical whirlwind?? Casanova Playboys Jamie Star and Mitch Magic are back at it again with Cockatoo's Dave Rebus! It just so happens that Jamie Stars Storyland first show at The Dungeon in Edmonton on September 23, 2011 made a surprising video debut flashing in bright, colorful lights with an image made of gold.


Jamie and Mitch look great up front donning heavy guitars and Dave's smashing drums makes the mouths of the people drool. With the opener "Just Because" being the highlight, Jamie Stars Storyland rocked through "Cowards", "Binoculars" and "Dreams", an old AWOL pearl. Heavy alternative-rock for sure and Jamie's momentary screams are haunting enough to create a real dungeon scenario.


On to Calgary the group went to play at The Distillery with Passing Clouds and Tired Skies. The vibe was grand, visually mesmerizing and the dark overtones of the venue never overshadowed Jamie Star's candescent stage aura. Didn't take us away from the beer-chugging good times rock!!


See Jamie Stars Storyland next on tour live in Vancouver, BC on October 23, 2011 as they take on the Railway Club with Kicked off the Farm and Passing Clouds. Tickets $8 at the door and show begins 8:30 PM.
