Handsome Furs: Sound Kapital
Buy! - (Sub Pop)
The third album from the husband-and-wife duo of Dan Boeckner (also of Wolf Parade) and Alexei Perry was the first to be written entirely on keyboards, and while the sound leans more electronic with guitar mostly relegated to the background, there’s plenty of rock ‘n’ roll energy in the album’s buzzing keyboards and anthemic choruses, combined here with propulsive rhythms and stirring melodies. The songs also share the politically charged perspective of 2009’s excellent Face Control, with a number of them serving as odes to their fellow musicians struggling under oppressive regimes. 6/10/2011 - Don Yates
