Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade and his old lady will release their side project album (by the name†Handsome Furs) called, Plague Park on May 22nd. Here’s what our brohams at Sub Pop have to say about the album:
“Dark and minimal while noisy and earnest, the point was to be as sparse and repetitive as possible with the help of little more than vocals, guitars, and a new drum machine. Through this, songs of earthbound captains, eggs made of gold and iron, and sleepless bodies were born. Boecknerís disenchanted vocals thinly resonate while cloaked in a frenzied undertone of fear and uncertainty, all punctuated by bare drum machine beats.”
