Stellar Kart - All Gas. No Brake.
Aptly titled "all gas. no brake," Stellar Kart's energetic debut release is a rollicking ride around the musical track. Stylistically drawing comparisons to Green Day, Blink 182, and early Audio Adrenaline (a self-confessed influence), these four lads from Phoenix know how to rev-up the motor with an infectious brand of punk-pop. It's clear that fuel that drives their engines is one of divine origin as evidenced from the opening chunky power chords of "Student Driver" to the acoustic-flavored sweet harmony of the closing "Finish Last." Jordan Messer (drums) and Tay Sitera (bass) lay down a skin-tight rhythm throughout, allowing the staccato guitar bursts of lead vocalist Adam Agee and Cody Pellerin to ride on top. Another testament to the band's ability is that "all gas.no brake."--their first--ever major label release--was self produced with a quality as high as Christian's music best. Other highlights include the simple-yet-beautiful worship song "A Love Song" and the delightful cover of Bon Jovi's 80's classic "Livin' On A Prayer." So buckle your seat belts, hop in the 'Kart, and enjoy the ride. You won't be sorry.
