Thumbnail for - STRFKR

When Starfucker named itself in 2007, it did so in part as a renunciation of fame: the Portland electropop band’s front man, Josh Hodges, just wanted to make people dance—commercial viability be damned. But Hodges’s plans were spoiled by his pop sensibility, as the band’s performance-based music fast made it one of Portland’s most buzzed-about acts. With its national profile rising, the band was counseled to change its PR-problematic name to Pyramid (and then, for legal reasons, to the idiotic Pyramiddd). Everyone was confused, and it felt like the band’s moment had passed. 

It hadn’t. After pink-slipping its management and changing its name back to a bad word (the band compromises sometimes with STRFKR), Starfucker put out an excellent sophomore record, Reptilians, in 2011. Now releasing its third, terribly catchy disc, Miracle Mile, the band secures its comeback.
