Har Mar Superstar

Har Mar Superstar (aka talented wildman Sean Tillman) will release his new album, Best Summer Ever, on Julian Casablancas' Cult Records on April 15. Casablancas produced it, and it features contributions from Karen O, Matt Sweeney (Chavez), and James Levy (Reputante). The ABBA-esque first single "Youth Without Love" is actually an old demo of Casablancas' that Har Mar liked and together they shaped it into something new. Stream it below.

You may have seen Har Mar on the Season 3 premiere of Broad City where he played an art hipster at a gallery opening (that also was a parody of the famous "Soy Bomb" Grammy scene-stealer). You can watch that clip below.

Har Mar will be touring like crazy this spring, and has a two night stand at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory on April 13 & 14 to celebrate the new album. Tickets are on sale now. He'll also be at SXSW and Primavera Sound. All dates are listed below.
