Life was supposed to be a film
Stars, the Canadian-Indie band that brought you the ethereally wonderful Set Yourself On Fire (2005), has a new album that’s been out for almost a year, but which I’ve just listened to all summer, In Our Bedroom After the War. If you’re a Metaphilm phan, chances are good you’ll like this one too, especially the song, “Life 2: The Unhappy Ending” which is sort of a melancholy pop rendition of Neal Gabler’s book, Life, The Movie: How Entertainment Conquered Reality. Where’s my unhappy ending now?
