The popular Portland group formerly known as Starfucker went back to the studio to add some fresh touches to their 2009 mini-LP, Jupiter. The result is a complete re-imagining of the original — as all eight songs received brand new mixes, three more tracks were added, and the entire record was re-mastered.
Jupiter features the songs “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” “Biggie Smalls” and a remix of “Rawnald Gregory Erickson the Second” – the original version was featured in ad spots for Target and helped break the band.
