Hailing from the west coast’s current musical hotbed Portland, Oregon, Starf*cker has managed to carve their own small niche in what is a pretty crowded arena lately for keyboard/percussion based indie dance music. Not quite as quirky as Justice or MGMT, and somewhat less intricate than Yeasayer, they have a hypnotic, loopy, synth and guitar driven sound that works just as well for chilling out and and listening as it does on the dance floor. In a perfect world the hand clap driven Mike Ptyson should be a dance floor mega smash along the lines of D.A.N.C.E or Time To Pretend. Laadeedaa is what Radiohead could sound like if they just learned how to shake their moneymaker a bit. It doesn’t stop there, the album’s eleven addicting songs deep. Starf*cker is Josh Hodges, Ryan Biornstad & Shawn Glassford and bring their highly anticipated performance to town Saturday night at Philadelphia’s M Room. But if Philly’s not your hang, don’t fret, there’s plenty of other stops as they cross the country on tour. including multiple shows at CMJ in New York and Halloween in Missoula, Montana of all places.
