Sound Kapital by Handsome Furs
Released: Jun 2011
Label: Sub Pop Records
Husband-and-wife Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry have thrown out the six-string in favor of synths for third album Sound Kapital. It's a somewhat natural progression from Plague Park's sparse, keyboard-tinged experiments to Face Control's steady slide into electro-pop territory -- but it's also slightly jarring. Boeckner's always been an axe man, most notably fronting Wolf Parade, and to hear his Springsteen-echoing yelps encircled by big bass-y beats and laser-shooting synths may throw off some of his most devoted, especially those not versed in '80s synth-pop, industrial and Euro club music.
