Starfucker On Tour!

Portland's finest, Starfucker have a brand new label, Polyvinyl, and are ready to embark on a fall tour in support of their single Julius.

Recording the track in the Odditorium (better known as the Dandy Warhols' studio), the band took a darker approach this time around from their debut album and EP...and whatever approach they took = awesome.

Check out and download Julius here:

Likely Looks: MGMT - Congratulations

Get ready to feel like you've entered Jurassic Park with MGMT's latest effort Congratulations. Set in the desert with the saddest looking dinosaur ever, MGMT come in to the rescue and attempt to help as much as they could. I just had the urge to feed looks starving.

Likely Looks: Rose Elinor Dougall - Find Me Out

So, THIS is what happens when you leave the Pipettes! Rose Elinor Dougall (aka the super cute brown haired Pipette) is gearing up for her solo release entitled Without Why (her first since splitting from the Pipettes) and if its anything like her single Find Me Out then we're all in for a real treat.

Toning down the 60's bubblegum and getting in touch with a softer side, Dougall creates a beautiful ballad that instantly lures you in on first listen.

The video can be see here:

She'll be performing several dates in the UK but nothing Stateside yet. Fingers crossed!
