Album Review: "KillerStar" By KillerStar (8/10)

HighWire Records

Producers: Rob Fleming and James Sedge

What do you get when you assemble a collection of supporting players from all eras of David Bowie’s illustrious career? An album The Thin White Duke would relish, of course! Still, this isn’t a tribute album or retread of overly familiar Ziggy Stardust tunes. It’s an entirely new band with a fresh art rock aesthetic. That said, the players have one musical foot planted firmly in the past, even as the other is stepping into the future. The group’s impeccable musicianship balances the two in intriguing harmony. – Andy Kaufmann
