Starfucker Starfucker

Starfucker is raising quite a fuss in its Portland hometown, much of it, presumably, owing to the dance-pop group's full-bore, way-posi spectacle of a live show. So, this rather short (just over 30 minutes) debut feels a bit perfunctory. Maybe it’s not, but Starfucker certainly isn't developed enough to propel the band far from its hometown–in between plague-catchy tracks like "German Love" and "Rawnald Gregory Erickson the Second" is a lot that should've been left in the cutting room. As "Pop Song," a love taunt wrapped in its titular candy of bounce and squirrelly synths, seems to announce, this isn't particularly clever or innovative, but neither is it supposed to be.
