Handsome Furs – Face Control

April 7, 2009

The Handsome Furs are an indie rock band from Montreal, Canada comprised of husband/wife duo Dan Boeckner, from Wolf Parade and Atlas Strategic, and his wife Alexei Perry. The music features Dan playing guitar over heavy synth drum machine beats manufactured by Alexei. The couples sophomore album “Face Control” paints a picture of post-Soviet Russia as dark and drippy and has deep political undertones of which I have not fully comprehended. One thing is for sure though, this record matches the cover art. BAD ASS.

Highlights Include, “All We Want, Baby, Is Everything“, “Legal Tender”, and the records best track “Thy Will Be Done”.
