Starfucker Signs to Polyvinyl Records + Releases New Single, "Julius"

04184_starfucker28_438.jpg
Portland's Starfucker has just announced signing with Polyvinyl Records, the Champaign, Illinois home of Of Montreal, Japandroids, Casiokids, and others. The band will release a 7" entitled Julius with a B-side called "Helium Muffin" on October 12, and if you're one of the first 500 to pre-order it (it's $5), you'll receive a limited edition dark blue vinyl version.

"Julius" the song is typically glittery and synth-happy, but it's also got a smoother groove than Starfucker's past material. I'm digging it, and you can download the track for free here.

As for the band's short-lived name change (remember Pyramidd?), their official statement on that is:

That was definitely the low point for the band, but we wised up and took the power back. We're doing things our way again without anyone trying to pull our strings
