Stars stir up a sound that is as shiny, sparkling and luminescent as their name. On the Montreal musicians’ ninth studio album, There Is No Love in Fluorescent Light, co–lead singers Torquil Campbell and Amy Millan exchange a variety of romantic sentiments against a mostly light pop-rock and electronic backing. Campbell has the more boldly earnest voice on “Alone” and the piano ballad “The Gift of Love,” whereas Millan purrs with a more overtly poppy delivery on such frothy reveries as “Real Thing.” Millan is even dreamier amid the cotton-candy streaks of the ethereal interlude “On the Hills.” At times, the wispy instrumentation and feathery vocals can get a bit twee, as on “California, I Love That Name,” where Millan’s California dreaming (“Deep in the canyons where the vampires run free”) is more cutesy than chilling. Also Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. 29-30.
