Indie pop and electro act Starfucker are definitely having a good Summer. They're about to go on tour with Austin's The Octopus Project, they just released a b-sides EP on Badman Recordings, and have signed on with Polyvinyl Records for the release of a new single titled "Julius" on October 12. I wonder if the album artwork will be orange.

Check out the MP3 of the track "Julius." Their music features a sort of inventiveness centered around the all-powerful pop music tool: the hook.

"Julius" will a limted edition blue vinyl release as well as a standard issue black vinyl with "Helium Muffin" as the b-side. They worked with producer Jacob Portrait to record the song at The Dandy Warhols' studio at the Odditorium.
