Breaking news for fans of the band Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head aka NPSH!  The band is changing their name to Brite Futures.  A variety of reasons were given on the band’s new website and my favorite reason is that their “love affair with that band name was just a fling.  That lasted and lasted and lasted.”  I saw the Seattle band in my pre-blog days opening for Lily Allen on the best party day of the year, 4/20, and I had a blazingly good time.  The band sounds like the Scissor Sisters meets the Chemical Brothers with mixtures of indie-pop thrown in for good measure and according2g, that’s a great thing.  I still listen to their debut album “Glistening Pleasure” a lot.  Speaking of that record, check out the track “Me + Yr Daughter.”  I love singing the lyrics “Me + Yr Daughter / Never been hotter /Touching my body” out loud as I walk down the street.  But I digress.  The band is changing its name to Brite Futures and if you click on their new official site (link is above), you can watch a hilarious video that explains the name change as well as getting a free mp3 their new track “Dog-Eared Summer.”  RIP Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head and viva Brite Futures!
