My pal Ryan Bjornstad and his bandmates Starfucker have signed to Polyvinyl (of Montreal, Architecture in Helsinki, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin) and getting ready to set off for a fall tour with Austin darlings Octopus Project. Here’s a stream upcoming release Julius. Tough Alliance with touches of Animal Collective.
I just noticed a “Be Calm and Carry On” framed print displayed prominently on a neighbors living room wall. They are everywhere, I would not be surprised to find them at Urban Outfitters or at Ikea in a yellow on blue edition with a meatball replacing the crown.
