Kind of feels like I’ve been on vacation here. Sporadic posting and dust collecting on the site here. Heard something really nice though that I’d like to get out there.
Enter the Handsome Furs. Two-piece from Montreal comprised of Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry. You might recognize his voice if you’ve been listening to music coming out of Montreal in the past couple of years. He also is one of the main voices from another Sub Pop approved band, Wolf Parade. There is something about his voice… I still remember hearing It’s A Curse on the CBC Radio 3 podcast years ago. Couldn’t even find the EP in Toronto at that point.
I dig the more minimal sound of this new project. Plague Park is their debut, due out May 22nd. It’s a “record of melancholic tendency and heartfelt desire; a stripped down symphony relegated between city and country, and made for ears of either side.”
Oh wait!! Toronto show announcement.
