Starfucker

Add Date: April 28

Artist: Starfucker

Album: Jupiter

Label: Badman

Genre: Rock, electropop, psych pop

Comments: A mini-LP to follow up last year's well-received eponymous debut from this Portland band. You can't say their name on the air--let's go with "Star-F-er" instead--but you can play all eight of these poppy, synth-driven tunes that fall somewhere between Of Montreal and MGMT on the musical spectrum. Starfucker don't separate making music from having fun, and as such the two best songs on Jupiter are called "Boy Toy" and "Biggie Smalls." Also check out an unnecessary-yet-interesting cover of the Cyndi Lauper hit "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," as well as a remix of "Rawnald Gregory Erickson the Second" from their 2008 LP.
