[on the road] Starfucker

I can’t quite remember which music blog introduced me to Starfucker, an indie-electronic band based in Portland, OR, but they’ve been a favorite of mine ever since.  Lucky for me (and the rest of the band’s fans), Starfucker is heading out on a big US tour, in support of their latest album Reptilians, which is set to be released on  beginning in March.  Along the way, they’ll be joined by Unknown Mortal Orchestra, BRAHMS, We All Have Hooks For Hands, and Casiokids!
