80 years of FLING

The first Fling may have been one of few bright spots in 1973. Richard Nixon was being a tricky dick, the Vietnam War had reached a breaking point at home and abroad and—worst of all—Penn’s fraternity life was in remission (the yearbook blamed the construction of the highrises).

Review: "The North" - Stars

Stars, the Canadian baroque–pop quintet, are back this fall with their sixth full–length album, "The North." The album opens with “Theory of Relativity,” a track that’s classic Stars, weaving together singer Torquil Campell’s even notes with the high chimes of Amy Millan’s voice.
