Entropy - 2011
Entropy features Alana Rolfe (viola, vocals), Brett Schreiber (bass, vocals) and Adam Pitner (drums).
"Moody and complex, deranged and epic; Stella Luce’s Entropy resembles the score to a Postmodern burlesque tragedy. The series of six anthems churns between mellow and dirge-like to passionate and calamitous. The quiet points swim in a symphonic grace, creating contrast to the somewhat grotesque..."

Zugunruhe - 2009
Zugunruhe features Alana Rolfe (viola, vocals), Brett Schreiber (bass, vocals), Erin Mcgraw, Kira Sands and Mike Sinclair.
"Take Una Volta-era DeVotchKa, subtractNick Urata's Morrissey croon and replace it with the sometimes-Ani-DiFranco, sometimes-Sarah-Vaughan vocals of Alana Rolfe, add a little more flair for weird noises, and you might get something that sounds like this Fort Collins-based act. The band's violin-based pop bears a broad range of influences, from lounge to Eastern Bloc to indie shoegaze. Eclectic yet satisfyingly consistent,Zugenruhe, Stella Luce's debut long-player, is well-rooted and hook-based. Some moments work better than others (the album's first track, "Prelude," for instance, sounds like a horror-movie soundtrack and gets grating after about the first thirty seconds), while the smoldering seduction of songs like "Esteban's Fishing Song" and the soaring builds of "Beltbomb Machine" make the album worth repeated listens." -Jeff Otte, Denver Westword
