Michael Maney, multi-instrumentalist for the local act The Farstar, is super hyped over his band's upcoming EP--so much so that he just sent over a yet-to-be-mastered cut from said EP for the edification of DC-9 readers. And, bonus, it's not the same one that's been all over KDGE 102.1 FM's Sunday night Local Show--that'd be "Waking Up".

This track, actually, is called "The Healing Kiss of a Blowtorch." Check it out after the jump.

The Farstar - "The Healing Kiss of a Blowtorch"

Very Coldplay and U2ish if you ask me--that is, if anyone is asking me. This style of epic, emotional rock must have a place in the Dallas scene, right? And The Farstar appears to have a sound that could garner them some national attention.

The new EP, titled Strange Kids (co-produced by Salim Nourallah and Rip Rowan), will come out later this year, while the band finishes up work on its second full-length album, God be with you, Heaven knows the Devil is, due out in 2010.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
