Australian dream pop band The Church is best-known for their single “Under the Milky Way” which, if you don’t recall by name, was kind of like Bowie on Quaaludes, underwater. That little sonic fever dream made its way into a bunch of commercials over the years, not to mention the film Donnie Darko, and it remains pretty much their only hit record, having been covered by the Killers, Sia, and others. The entire Starfish album was just as sublime as the single, and I still tend to spin it at least annually, but I confess that I’ve never owned any of their other full-lengths. I’d skip through a few of their more recent releases for this column in order to tell you a bit more about what they’ve been up to, but it hardly matters since it’s a Starfish 30th Anniversary Tour that brings them to the Belly Up on May 7.
