Brooklyn-based indie folk/pop outfit The Eastern Stars is a band transfixed into another time and space, a simpler era both in American history and in their own personal lives. Hence the title of July 5th, 1961, a date on which nothing of political or social significance occurred, yet a date on which everything imaginable happened: birth, death, tragedy, baseball, and slugging back to work with Holiday hangovers.

Rob Corradetti and Kaia Wong provide dualing lead vocals on several songs, often with adorable consequences. Infused with equal parts Galaxie 500, Elliott Smith, Beat Happening, July 5th, 1961 should provide an afternoon lift.
