RELEASE DATE(S): 10 Jun 2002

Caural's musical journey began in the summer of 1984 with a Fisher-Price cassette recorder bumping the sounds of Thomas Dolby and the Beat Street soundtrack: the perfect backdrop for long summer days of skateboarding and break dancing. Now wrapped in nostalgia and headphones, the 24 year-old multi-instrumentalist and super human hailing from the city of wind takes you on his sophomore outing, once again delivering his unique blend of influences. The result is a potent dose of neck-snapping abstract soundscapes rooted in Hip Hop and drenched in the atmosphere of everyday life. With upcoming compilation appearances, remix work and tour plans, Caural is currently in the studio finishing up his EP slated for the fall, featuring new instrumentals, cutting edge lyricists, and a remix by Savath and Savalas. Until then, Stars On My Ceiling gives you a look at the sky through Caural's eyes.
