"The long-awaited 2014 album! Stardeath & White Dwarfs' heavy, gods-hammering sound owes as much to sludgy prog-rock influences like King Crimson and Pink Floyd as it does to Uncle Wayne's oeuvre." — The Guardian

Oklahoma City freak rockers Stardeath and White Dwarfs return. Dennis Coyne, the frontman of the psychedelic band, is the nephew of The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne. Which is why it only makes sense that Uncle Wayne (and the rest of his band) show up on Stardeath’s new album Wastoid, as guests on the track “Screaming.”

But the whole album is an acid-crisped document of weird trips, noisy tantrums, and even moments of tender melancholy, writes the A.V. Club.

"'Luminous Veil' opens with an apology, but really it's Stardeath and White Dwarfs who deserve the mea culpa. The Norman, Oklahoma psych quartet have been doing their freaky thing since 2004, but they haven't yet been given their due, in their own right. ... But with new album Wastoid, Stardeath find their own deep, deep groove. Below you can hear 'Luminous Veil,' an aptly titled cut that finds Dennis' wistful, Grandaddy-recalling vocals drifting through a blooming haze of pretty psychedelia. The album arrive July 29 on Dave Sitek's Federal Prism label, and purports to be as influenced by the Dungeon Family as well as Crazy Horse." — Spin
