Emerging from the sidelines after a pinwheel of projects in 2011, the noise-pop Portland four piece Starfucker (STRFKR) are about to release new material (knuckle taps ensue). After their debut album in 2008, Starfucker (Badman Recording), the talents cemented a place among neo-pop crowds with dance beats and introverted melodies. From there, the halo of ambient voices and metallic electronics bypassed a standstill and churned out a lineup of singles, a tribute to Japan in March 2011, a mega album tour with a ghostly Reptilians (producer Jacob Portrait + released on Polyvinyl), a pairing with Champagne Champagne for a split 7″, and a psychedelic mix remastered as Jupiter. Before Reptilians was over, the band was already chalking up sounds for their latest demo (Heaven’s Youth), with hints of The Naked And Famous (The Sun), some MGMT and work with Skeletron for a complete medley of swaggering revamped audio to surface late Spring.
Now, laced up for another cliffhanger music adventure, drum ninja Keil Corcoran together with literati Josh Hodges and key champs Shawn Glassford and Patrick Morris, hydrate the Northwest with yankee stories over perennial pop in a forthcoming third album currently being recorded (Polyvinyl). Having swapped mic and material with seasoned beasts Sexton Blake, Bjornstad, Dylan Magierek, Mark Gajadhar and Jacob Portrait to name a few, this playhouse calls for an asterisk as they rev up new work on schedule in coming weeks. Stay tuned!
