Music Video Monday!: STRFKR - Beach Monster

It's strange how sometimes when you talk about something that you've never really paid attention to before starts to pop up more frequently at random times in your life. For example, the Oregon based, indie band Starfucker (STRFKR) comes to mind in regards to that. I can still remember me and Nick talking about them and us thinking how stupid the name was. "Why would a band name themselves that?" "You have to question if they are any good." "Delta Spirit is a really good band." I digress.

Well I recently looked past the name and took the time to find out if they are any good. I'm happy to report that this is a band with some substance. Although they might not be for everyone, they do have some catchy tunes. For someone like me, they are probably best recognized by the song 'Rawnald Gregory Erickson the Second', which I like and was featured in a Target commercial, but despite the questionable name they are far more than just a tune for Pink Pepto spot. In my research, I found out that I might be a Starfucker fan. Not a go to one of their concerts fan, but at least a download a handful of their songs fan. If you've never given them a listen and you like MGMT, Phoenix & Empire of the Sun, then you might find something you like.  

Today's MVM, "Beach Monster" comes from their latest album, Miracle Mile. I hope you enjoy the video, your Monday and as always remember to live your soundtrack out loud.
