Pick of the Week: Digging on that Starter track hard! So silly, but so catchy!!! Below is some German Tele footage of Starter. I can't tell whether the female synth player is focusing intensely or if she is just completely disinterested in the performance. The lead singer makes up for it though. Incredible.
