Album Review

Over the course of his tenure as Har Mar Superstar, Sean Tillmann has always looked backwards to R&B nasty-jam provocateurs like Prince for inspiration, rekindling the fire of the classic sex jam while his contemporaries were reviving garage rock. Bye Bye 17, however, finds the songwriter looking even further back, diving headfirst into classic R&B with an album that's more about soul than sleaze. With crunchy, retro production and a full band (including a horn section) backing him up, the album finds Har Mar channeling greats like Sam Cooke as he pours his heart into tracks like "Lady, You Shot Me," and "Everywhere I’m Local." While the stylistic change seems a bit jarring at first, the change is ultimately a refreshing one. Sure, the disco flourishes of 2009's Dark Touches might have mixed things up a bit, but Bye Bye 17 is more transformative than that. This isn't just an artist exploring his sound's roots a bit, it's a full-on metamorphosis, with Har Mar Superstar transforming from a banana-hammocked caterpillar into a slightly more clothed butterfly. Even more surprising, however, is that despite how curated the album sounds, Bye Bye 17 feels less gimmicky than a lot of his other work. For perhaps the first time, Tillmann is coming at the songs from an angle that doesn't depend on the cognitive dissonance created by his sexual boasts played against his Ron Jeremy-esque appearance. Instead, we have an album of straight-up soul-pop that once again shows that beneath his greasy exterior, Har Mar Superstar has the heart of a soul man.

So good

I'm listening to this album for the first time right now, and it's actually good on the first listen. Which is an accomplishment; normally I have to walk around with music for a while before I start really enjoying it.

Impressed.

This is one of those records that I picked up on a whim. (I hate to say that…but I had no idea who I was downloading but it looked fun.) I LOVE soul and I'm impressed with his ability to keep things classic but at the same time not make them 100% throw-back and cookie cutter. There are odd layers and nuances that are extremely fun on this record. Well done, my friend…glad to have finally found you.

Dripping with Awesome in EVERY Track

Saw the gang in concert a week before the album dropped and the show was amazing. The album version of the tracks doesn't disappoint. I give this one two pube sweat flicks and four panty drops! I love this album!

Biography

Formed: St. Paul, MN

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

To put it bluntly, Har Mar Superstar (aka Sean Tillmann) is a balding, out-of-shape white man with a pencil-thin moustache who croons sex-laden R&B tunes while breakdancing. His live shows, sung to the backing of a small boombox, usually culminate in Har Mar stripping down to his underwear (often of the tighty whitey variety). That's only part of the story, though, for he also happens to sing well and write some fine tunes. In fact, he has penned songs for Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Osbourne; the...
