The Sad Little Stars

Formed in New York City in 2003, The Sad Little Stars started with Max Low and Rachel McIntosh as a duo. Their live show originally consisted of Max and Rachel kicking pedals to record and loop their guitar and bass parts live on the spot, freeing them to play keyboards and trigger drum machines while singing their asses off. Each of their limbs representing an invisible member of the band. Their first release, The Stars Below, is a fifteen-song recording which highlights the band’s softer side. Full of romantic pop gems, The Stars Below bursts with sweeping harmonies and folk instruments fused with synthesized riffs and electronic drum beats. That album also includes the tune “Don’t Fuck With Love”, the soundtrack to their award winning stop-motion animated music video of the same name. In the Stop Motion Breakdown, their 2006 release, The Sad Little Stars have expanded upon the electronic elements they used in the past, transforming their ambient drifting melodies into driving dance beats and edgy keyboard riffs while retaining their love for the classic pop form. To complete their new live show, they’ve enlisted the expert, hard-rocking assistance of Jeff Harrigfeld on drums, Tom Longobardi on bass and Riley McMahon on guitar allowing Max and Rachel the freedom to slam it hard on keys and vocals up front. The result is an unprecedented rock experience that’s not to be missed. The Sad Little Stars actively tour the east coast and have performed CMJ 2003-2006. Their music video for Don’t Fuck With Love has been featured on the Independent Film Channel and continues to tour the globe with various film festivals including Spike and Mike’s Sick and Twisted. It has won awards including best music video at The Animation Block Party in New York, best music video at the Golden Star Shorts Festival in Los Angeles and second place for best music video at 2006 SXSW to name a few. They are currently planning the tour for their latest release The Stop Motion Breakdown.
