Even if they hadn't released an album called North, which they did this year on Dave Matthews-founded ATO Records, Stars would be difficult to mistake for as anything but Canadian. There's something both distant and friendly in their appealing blend of indie-rock and synth-pop, fronted by Amy Millan and Torquil Campbell as an ongoing dialogue about heart and home. Dusted with strings and disco beats, North walks a fine line between intimacy and pop ambition. Good week for local fans of the extended Broken Social Scene family.
