Handsome Furs – Sound Kapital
(Sub Pop, 2011)
‘I won’t be the same no more‘ If back in 2005 someone would have told me that by 2011 Wolf Parade would have ceased to exist and Dan Boeckner would be just as known for his sex-infused electronic-rock project Handsome Furs, I would have called bullshit. As implausible as it may have been back when Apologies came out, Dan and his wife have now become the most consistent of the many Wolf Parage spin-offs. Sound Kapital might fall slightly short of the past two albums, but it’s still one of my favorites this summer.
