If your eyes can handle the visual assault that is Har Mar Superstar (think aging porn star) then your ears will thank you for this crooner’s futuristic take on R&B. With a sound that’s equal parts Justin Timberlake, Beck and Kool & the Gang, the artist originally known as Sean Tillman brings sexy back in a fashion that’s at once awkward and awesome, soulful and boogie-inducing. Har Mar’s latest album, Dark Touches, is chock-full of sensual beats; deep, booty-shaking grooves; and improbably off-kilter lyrics about manicures, cheap beer and party hook-ups. Sure it’s more than a little shticky, but you’re having fun, right? Chill out and get down already. 1517 21st Street,
