Montreal’s Handsome Furs have a new album on the horizon! Their second effort, Face Control, is due out on Sub Pop Records 3/10.
The side project of Wolf Parade‘s guitarist and vocalist Dan Boeckner and his wife Alexei Perry, Handsome Fur’s Face Control ‘draws inspiration from Eastern Europe and re-maps Eastern Bloc surveillance state themes to contemporary life and the irony of our acceptance and embrace of self-monitoring, through blogs and facebooks and myspaces and credit/debit accounts and surveillance cameras and GPS devices.’ Confused? Just listen to this new track, ‘I’m Confused’. And if you haven’t already heard their debut album, Plague Park, do so now. It was one of my favorites for 2007.
Face Control Track Listing:
- Legal Tender
- Talking Hotel Arbat Blues
- (Passport Kontrol)
- All We Want, Baby, Is Everything
- I’m Confused
- (White City)
- Nyet Spasiba
- Officer of Hearts
- (It’s Not Me, It’s You)
- Thy Will Be Done
- Radio Kaliningrad
Listen to ‘I’m Confused’:
Listen to ‘Radio Kaliningrad‘:
glad you’re a fan! they just played a mini-set at a local record store’s anniversary party along with one of my favourite acts, Miracle Fortress.
If you don’t know Miracle Fortress, I guarantee you will love. Major Brian Wilson influence with some playful atmospherics.
