Northside Festival has ended


“Starfucker” is a somewhat silly name that the Portland electro-pop band who use it have thought about ditching more than once. After using it to self-title their candy-colored psych debut in 2008, they toyed with PYRAMID, then Pyramidd, before dropping the vowels for a slightly more chase STRFKR, and then landing back where they started. It works somehow, though not in the usual cheap, fame-whoring context. Their bold, swirling keyboard pop has an immediate physical effect, but a reach out to the cosmos. They make hits with hopes of seducing a few celestial bodies.
