STRFKR Reptilians review

BY Laurie in Music

On their second full-length album, Reptilians (out on March 8th on Polyvinyl), Starfucker makes a solid attempt to gain notoriety for something other than their radio-unfriendly handle, but they mostly stay within familiar synth-heavy, dance-pop territory. First single “Julius” stands out for its glittery sound effects and infinitely hummable melody, while tracks like “Bury Us Alive” and “Astoria” are readymade for Friday nights at the hipster disco. Underneath all those fun little bleeps and boops, the lyrics are actually kind of depressing. Read More
Emma Roberts, niece of Julia Roberts, and Dave Franco, brother of James Franco, both starred in MTV’s Supervideo. In an attempt to resurrect the music video, collaborators, MTV and Mean Magazine have created a Supervideo series using great directors, awesome music, big stars, and an artistic approach.

Atlanta grime-rock masters, The Black Lips, announced a month of additional dates to their already packed North American tour in support of their forthcoming album. The album is produced by Amy Winehouse hit maker Mark Ronson, a far cry from the directly to tape analog recordings of their 2007 album, Good Bad Not Evil. As the Vice blog noted, it's "the most anticipated collaboration since Sid and Nancy." Infamous for puking on stage, the Black Lips are giving you two months worth of shows. Plenty of time to wow you with their heavy jams and gross you out with their bodily fluids. Read More
