Har Mar Superstar Announces New LP, Featuring Guest Spots from Andrew WK, Boom Bip, Adam Green

The long wait is over! Har Mar Superstar is finally releasing a new record! The seemingly endless drought of Casio-driven sex jams sung by an overweight, balding man with a nasally voice has finally ended!

Okay, so I don’t know who out there has actually been fiending for a new Har Mar Superstar record, but their day in the sun is here. Actually, their real day in the sun is coming October 13, when Har Mar (a.k.a. Minneapolis’s Sean Tillman) drops his fourth record, Dark Touch, on Dilettante Records. This thing ought to be weird, too. First, check the list of collaborators: Andrew WK producer John Fields, Clark Baechle and Jacob Thiele of The Faint, ex-Moldy Peach Adam Green, Rhymesayers rapper P.O.S., Boom Bip of Neon Neon, some band called Flowers of Doom, and The O.C. actress Samaire Armstrong. Second, there is a song (“Tall Boy”) originally written for Britney Spears, along with another (“Girls Night”) written for The Cheetah Girls.

You know, I’ve really got nothing particularly against ol’ Har Mar Superstar, but really? He's the last person I expected to make a comeback. Apparently, Tillman’s been pretty busy since 2004’s The Handler. Along with Dark Touch, the guy’s appearing alongside Ellen Page and Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat in the Drew Barrymore-directed Whip It and working on some movie scripts and sitcom pilots. Here’s hoping Tillman finds some time to tour, just so people can have this experience.
