I have come to the conclusion that if the lead singer is male and whisper/sings, I'm going to feel ill. Lets chat about Starfuckers shall we?
What the fuck is a Starfucker? Is it that they fuck stars like Lindsey Lohan or something or is cuz they jerk at night under a canopy of the little dipper? Regardless of what it means- its stupid. There is something really pointless in naming your band something that is "shocking".
So ok you're cool cuz your band has the word fuck-in it but really how much attention will that get you and how many moms are gonna tell their hipster spawn not to wear your merch? If you think your fans are looking cool with your band name on their chest or on the sticker on the back of their Prius or skateboard- you're wrong. Iman and I had this talk about band names one, basically in my opinion you have just doomed yourself forever in the discount rack of Bobs Record Palace. Say what you will but your merch pays your grocery bill- you're gonna starve.
The song "Bury Us Alive" sounds like Battlestar Gallactica. Are there any humans in this band or is it a dude who whispers and his Mac? Maybe hes busy fucking stars it doesn't matter. If you take out the vocals the song is tolerable, the highs are a bit high and its more than a tad repetitive but its not horrible. What is horrible is the moody dreamy vocal overlay. Its pointless.
I would think Starfucker fans think this is a masterpiece but to me its another flash in the pan another whispers singer. Its Alan Alda with a keyboard.
