Stars Above Us

Saint Etienne brought their beautiful indie pop to Irving Plaza last night. Quality show. Sarah's voice sounded great. Accompanying Pete and Bob were a live band - drummer, bassist, guitarist and backing vocalist - so the show had a different feel to it with live instumentation rather than just synths. A nice mix of old and new (I think they threw in 5 or so songs from the new Tales From The Turnpike House). Highlights were "Who Do You Think You Are," "Spring," "Nothing Can Stop Us Now," "Action" and new single "Stars Above Us." As usual, their agony was gorgeous.
