Handsome Furs - Plague Park review

Handsome Furs - Plague Park (2007, Sub Pop Records)

With Spencer Krug getting his kicks in with Sunset Rubdown and Swan Lake, the other frontman of Wolf Parade, Dan Boeckner, had some time on his has, and thus we get Handsome Furs, his new project with his fiancée Alexei Perry. The result is nearly as strong as Boeckner's efforts on Wolf Parades Apologies to the Queen Mary. "Handsome Furs Hates This City," for instance, comes across only slightly less catchy than "Same Ghost Every Night." Perhaps there's nothing on par with "Shine a Light" on this record, but it's still worth grabbing if you like the Wolf Parade songs that sound like they were being sung by Beck.
