Review by Lindsay Hutton of The Only Stars 7" in The Next Big Thing.

Don't know what it is about "The Only Stars" by National Park but it's oddly familiar, like I heard it in a previous existence. Anyways, these
Luna-landscape, Mazzy Star-tuesque frequencies revive that great tradition of the cool Glasgow 7" just in time for the nights drawing in and the youngsters gathering around their gramophones. Title track includes the great Bill Wells and Belle and Sebastian alumni Sarah Martin and Mick Cooke.

Flip is a short shimmering instro entitled "La Solara". Distributed in the
UK by Cargo but you can order it direct from Yield Recordings. Apologies for the sleeve repro, it's not designed to be viewed as a thumbnail and I am entirely down with that.
