iTunes Review

Handsome Furs is Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade) and his wife Alexei Perry, who color way outside the lines drawn by other current, Canadian indie bands, including Boeckner’s own. Boeckner is a hugely talented songwriter, and with the Furs he explores a wholly different range of outsider rock, brimming with conviction and confidence. His voice is full and expressive, a bucketful of gravitas deep in his chest. Shadows of rockabilly and American roots music color tracks like “Evangeline” and “All We Want, Baby, Is Everything,” although the buzz and hum of Perry’s synths streamline the tracks into icy cool numbers instead of rumbling rave-ups. “I’m Confused” and “Radio Kaliningrad” are fueled by unabated new-wave power-pop, but tracks like “Legal Tender” and “Thy Will Be Done” bring the Furs into the contemporary electro-pop realm. “I’m Confused” sounds like an ‘80s college radio hit run through a 21st-century filter with the “Minimalist Howl” button cranked up, while “Passport Kontrol” flirts with dub undertones. The Furs are not easy to categorize, certainly. And that’s only one of their many strengths.

Absolutely Amazing!!!

I fell in love with Plague Park when I first heard it... When I got to experience The Handsome Furs live soon after, I was in awe... They gave us a great teaser of the upcoming album and I could tell it would be great, I was not disappointed! I've listened to it nonstop and my favorites are "Radio Kaliningrad" and "Evangeline." This is definitely an essential to anyone's music library!!! Glad to give it 5 well-deserved stars!!!

Nice sophomore album

The good news? Handsome Furs avoided a sophomore slump. The bad news? I need something new to look forward to now. Dan and Alexei definately delivered on this album. Its catchy and thought provoking, with hooks like no other. I was a big wolf parade fan and then when out of that wonderful band sprouted handsome furs, swan lake and sunset rubdown i loved those too, and this cd definitely doesn't disappoint, i'd even say its better then plague park, but maybe it will take a few more listens before i bestow upon it that title for good.

plagiarism

The song All We Want, Baby, Is Everything is a complete and total rip off of New Order's song Temptation. Listen to it yourself. They even copy the lyrics! I love Wolf Parade, but this song, while great, is almost exactly the same song. Id watch out for pending litigation if I were them...

Biography

Formed: 2005 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

The Montreal-based duo Handsome Furs formed in 2005 around the talents of Vancouver transplants Dan Boeckner (frontman of Wolf Parade) and Alexei Perry. The husband-and-wife team released the atmospheric Plague Park in 2007, utilizing drum machines and world-weary melodies to distinguish the band's debut from Wolf Parade's own output. Plague Park earned accolades for its electronic twist on indie rock, with Rolling Stone likening the band to "a dingy version of the Cure rocking some hipster dive...
