Customer Reviews


This took forever to find on CD a few years ago. The album itself jumps all over the place, but it's a great mix of experimental noise and soft simple songs. Its hard to love every track, but there's more strong hits than misses on here. "Shoe In" and "Some Sinatra" remind you how powerful songs can be even with just simple riffs. Both Geoff (from Karate) and Jody take turns at the mic and are equally amazing and heart felt. I'm pretty sure Ted Leo had a hand in this album as well (and you probably know Death Cab for Cutie covered this guys in the early days).

Some Sinatra

Probably one of the most devastatingly beautiful songs about a break-up. Listen to it on Youtube if you need to hear the whole song.


In the summer of 2001, a friend gave me a cd with the words "The Secret Stars" written on it in sharpie. I quickly fell in love with these songs (especially the song Some Sinatra), but I eventually lost the cd. Several times over the last decade, I looked for this band and record online, but to no avail. Until now, that is. Wow. Listening to these songs again 11 years later brings back a flood of memories.


Formed: 1993 in Boston, MA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s

Concurrent with his work in the emo band Karate, in mid-1993 singer/guitarist Geoff Farina formed the Boston-based lo-fi folk-pop duo the Secret Stars with best friend Jodi Buonanno. Imagined more as an ongoing media project than a traditional band, they self-released their eponymous debut cassette in 1994, re-releasing the material on the Shrimper label the following year. Farina spent much of the mid-1990s focusing on Karate, and as a result no new Secret Stars...
