Influenced by 80\'s Hip-Hop style, electro clash and lo-fi psyche, this Portland, OR based three piece craft handmade indie dance-pop delivered by dual drummers and stick to your brain melodies. This is some of the catchiest, most danceable pop put to tape. The experience of seeing Starf***er\'s live performance delivers a certain nostalgia; a reminder of what it was like to be a teenager: inspired, curious, open, hungry for anything new, and smiling uncontrollably. Whether dressed in \'80s era Brooklyn hip-hop style or electro clash, the three bring a new experience and unpredictability to every show. After seeing Starf***er perform, Dylan Magierek of Badman Recording Co. Was blown away. \'Seeing them play for that first time was one of those very rare occasions when I immediately felt I had to work with these guys. Their sound is absolutely infectious and they have all the elements I look for in a great band.\' Recording at Portland's Type Foundry, the debut album of Josh Hodges, Ryan Biornstad and Shawn Glassford is like playing an 8-bit video game where your primary objective is to overcome heartbreak and an obsession with death, your only weapon a love laser mounted on a space bike that zaps out bright red blips and neon bleeps. It\'s poppy, it\'s catchy, and it\'s palatable, and that\'s a good thing. "Starf***er\'s forthcoming self-titled album is a fine piece of fractured, homemade pop, with handclaps, bleary synthesizers, drum machines, clunky acoustic guitars, and honeyed lo-fi harmonies." - Pitchforkmedia Voted one of Portland Oregon's Best New Bands of 2008 by Willamette Week and a featured artist on Myspace.
