Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Don't Blame the Stars was recorded live in a garage in Columbus, Ohio in May of 2008. It is a batch of songs about being agnostic and finding meaning in friendships, identity, and music instead of a higher power. Often with spoken word introductions, the album models itself after Willie Nelson's Yesterday's Wine, but whereas Willie is speaking to God, Black Swans' frontman Jerry DeCicca is talking to the listener, or himself, or no one.


"Don't Blame the Stars is one of the best records you'll hear all year. It is full of sad songs about happy things, and happy sounding songs about very, very strange things. They are irreverent, eidetic tales of superstition, addiction, being lost, getting found, and just being alone. In short, lyrical, hilarious meditations on being alive and living - for which, as frontman Jerry DeCicca will tell you, 'there is no known cure.'" --James Jackson Toth of Wooden Wand

Format: Audio CD
4th release from Ohio band--heart-wrenching, shiver-inducing, sit-on-the-couch-and-cry country/
folk downer ballads powered by the devastatingly gentle, weary, emotionally drained voice of
singer Jerry DeCicca, a troubadour with exceptional depth of spirit. Shades of the National,
Tindersticks, Okkervil River, American Music Club.
