Dan Boeckner from Wolf Parade is one of my favorite voices out there right now, and this week I finally am able to spend some quality time with his side project, Handsome Furs.
It's the same great songwriting and rock and roll voice we expect from Dan, but a bit darker than the Wolf Parade stuff. In other words, it's fantastic.
My favorite track so far, Cannot Get Started.
Handsome Furs have a handful of North American tour dates left, sadly none on the Front Range:
