Song of the Day 6/18/08: Starfucker - German Love
You know what? Looking back at our featured songs, last week was sort of a downtempo affair. Not that I don't love me some ambience, but there's a time and a place. This week we're gonna feature a bunch of catchy upbeat jams to compensate. We kicked it off with a Diplo remix and some sweet surf rock; today we're moving into the fiendishly catchy "German Love," courtesy of Starfucker.
Assuming you aren't at work or in the presence of small children, say that out loud a few times: Starfucker! Starfucker! Fun, innit? This song itself gives you the same goofy, sort of juvenile warmth that their name conjures. It's all there - poppy guitar, warm vocals, weird electronic oscillations, and a whole blanket of reversed, warping strings. And, of course, a sweet tale of young lust on top of it all. Enjoy this one - again, in the presence of people to whom you won't feel embarrassed repeating the name when they ask you who's playing. Because they will ask. It's that good.
