Secondstar is Liam Carey and a few other fine musicians.
With a new EP out called 'Teeth' which is best described as a mixture of alt-folk-rock with guitar, banjo, layered vocals, drums, cello and whistling and with bunches of harmonies.
Secondstar are in my opinion worth checking out if the above description gains your attention.
The band live in Brooklyn, New York, and a follow-up EP called 'Feets' should be out in a few weeks.
You can find out more about Secondstar at their MySpace site along with details of getting hold of a copy of 'Teeth', and of course stream a few more songs there.
