Editorial Reviews

Less than a year after their successful debut album, this Portland, Oregon quartet returns with eight infectious songs to deliver a non-stop house party. The experience of seeing Starfucker's live performance delivers a reminder of what it was like to be a teenager: inspired, curious, open, hungry for anything new, and dancing uncontrollably. This new 26 minute mini-album of fractured homemade pop, with hand claps, bleary synths, drum machines, clunky acoustic guitars, and honeyed lo-fi harmonies showcases the upbeat tunes that they are best loved for from their sold out live performances.

By William Merrill VINE VOICE on September 23, 2008
Format: Audio CD
Hearing this CD was a genuine discovery of something new and exciting. It's ultra-catchy synth-pop, featuring addictive beats and lighter-than-Air vocals. Listening to these eleven tunes, I was reminded at times of previous electro-pop artists such as BeBop Deluxe, Devo and Thomas Dolby, and there's also a brief instrumental homage to ELO ("Pop Song"). At the same time, lead Starf***er Josh Hodges has also clearly got his own thing going. Basically, he and co-producer (and label head) Dylan Magierek just have unerring instincts for putting together a captivating piece of music. I defy you to listen to "German Love" and not be drawn in! I only hope that Josh's choice of a band name (which must be tough for marketing and other purposes) doesn't keep people away from this outstanding album! By the way, this is my first five-star review in quite awhile. I don't give out five stars casually, but this disc is truly amazing!

A far cry from the Carly Simon plagiarizing, ham-fisted Nine Inch Nails track of the same name, wannabe ironic/risque bedroom recordists Starf*cker punt near a dozen clunky, lo-fi but syrupy-warm pop gems our way for their laid-back, if not family-titled, debut. Homemade Casiotones, fuzzy drum machines and occasional flimsy acoustic guitar meet Rob Crow vox halfway for this fun, head-bobbing collection of tunes strong on hooks and short on words, just the way the doctor ordered.

The anesthetized bounce of "Florida" sets the tone for the record and steers everyone in just the right laid-back, gateway-drugged direction. As an added bonus, it finishes with the most hilarious wordplay on the entire album, a Monty Python-ish voice-over* filtered as if through a dying record player:

"How much wiggle is *a* wiggle? Well, you have to draw the line somewhere. So people come to some sorts of agreements about, uhh, how much of a wiggle... is a wiggle. That is to say, a thing. One wiggle. One can always reduce any one wiggle into sub-wiggles. Or see it as a subordinate wiggle in a bigger wiggle. But there's no real fixed rule about it..."

Something like this emerges from a bedroom studio every once in a blue moon to greet hipsters with fistfuls of indie street cred, usually sporting some kind of almost-clever name (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, anyone?), only to be forgotten in a few months. Questions of longevity aside, though, it's the present that matters, and right now, the simple pleasure of sloppy falsetto harmony and delicious keyboard portamento (as in the aptly-named "Pop Song") is too delectable to pass up. Starf*cker get all their portions right, too: "Hard Smart Beta" cooks in just under two minutes.

One of my new favorite artists, all of STRFKR's albums are good, so can't pick just one. I think this album is a little more mellow than some of their other albums. Overall, great music, great atmosphere, wonderful time. Step outside yourself for a spell and experience the magical nature, that is STRFKR!!

So I've always been frustrated when I try to find out what is being said in "Hard Smart Beta" (track 8). I stumbled across the answer while watching a tv program about the moon. The audio is from the Apollo 17 mission, the last manned mission to the moon. The crew was comprised of Commander Eugene Cernan, Command Module Pilot Ronald Evans, and Lunar Module Pilot/Geologist Harrison Schmitt. The team was struggling to stay on schedule when Schmitt noticed he was kicking up orange soil. The first bit of the conversation sampled is Schmitt saying in surprise "Oh.....hey.... there is ORANGE soil!". I'm not sure whether the person who responds is Evans or Cernan, but whoever it is says "well don't leave until I see it". The next soundbites are a little jumbled but one can distinctly make out "it's all over", "it's ORANGE!", "I stirred it up with my feet", and "fantastic". The astronauts took as many samples as the could and left. There is a reference that the wikipedia article of the mission cites that is a voice transcript from the mission. I didn't comb through the whole thing to find the conversation (tl;dr), but if you want to the link is : <...>
or if that link changes you can go to the wikipedia article and find the one that says "voice transcript pertaining to the geology of the landing site".

In case your curious the orange soil turned out to be ancient volcanic jet. This means that the moon could have had active volcanoes at one time, but more likely it was simply left there from collisions with a young Earth or space debris.

Hopefully I ruined the mystery of this song and eased the minds of some obsessively curious people (I include myself in that group). Also, it's a great song.

The person speaking on other tracks is Alan Watts, my favorite 20th century philosopher. This isn't a mystery though since it's written on the credits of the cd.

Received the album today, turned out to be the 180g vinyl version, winning. Anyway, brilliant band and completely unrecognized... Sure, you're probably not going to see their name in Walmart or Target, but their music is soooo good! Brilliant and big synthesizer noises, amazing acoustics, great ryhthms, amazing lyrics, and excellently mastered. Pretty much everything you could ever expect from an Indie Pop band and more. I usually don't listen to Pop, I'm more of an Alternative Rock (or any Rock) sort of guy, but this band has me rethinking my life decisions! Very satisfied. I hope they get their name out there lol, Starfucker.

Side note : Vinyl quality is VERY good. I'm hearing no pops, clicks, scraping, warp, static etc... Don't hesitate on buying the vinyl if you're a turntable junkie like me, great quality.
