One could break down all the elements of the band's sound--the mix of icy electronic beats and strings (more reminiscent of New Wave than of most recent electronica), the wry, cynical sentimentality of the songwriting, the sublime hooks, the romance and urbanity--but Nightsongs is more than the sum of its parts.
Somehow, Stars pulls off this difficult feat with a shimmering, danceable electronic version that's both a tribute to the original and a fabulous piece of music in its own right (though they speculate in the press release that Morrissey would "despise it unequivocally).
Stars knows that it would be fruitless to try and imitate Marr's guitar, so it respectfully appropriates the sound, creating ties between its own digital artistry and the organic analog genius that inspired it.

During the 1990s, the band was known as proponents of the slick based Paris "soukous" style, which truncated the more traditional Congolese rumba by focusing solely on the sabene (guitar solo/animation finale portion of the more traditional congolese rumba).
A sampling of Soukous Stars albums, all recommended, are as follows: The band's most recent album, Freetown At Last, is an exciting homage to the music of Sierra Leone, with a rumba twist.
Another recent recruit into the Soukous Stars lineup is Chico Mawatu, who although relatively unknown in the USA is considered by Congolese music connoisseurs to be a significant contributor to the the rumba congolaise genre.

Also, Cats Down Under the Stars is the first CD to be under the name Jerry Garcia Band; the first three were just under the name Jerry Garcia.

One primary difference between the sound of the album and the bonus material is that album is much more polished, using electronic keyboards and Garcia uses a whole host of tonal effects, where as the bonus material sticks more to piano and a clean guitar attack.
