Face Control

posted by: Sam

On March 10th, the Montreal duo Handsome Furs will unleash their second record Face Control

Judging by the cover, I’m confident the much anticipated follow up to their brilliant 2007 record, Plague Park, will pack quite a bite.

The band layers cold, jagged guitars over swift electronic beats.  The vocals are shaky and distant, but are inviting and sexy at the same time.  The juxtaposition sounds like it could be a confusing mess, but it isn’t.  It all works beautifully together.  Their sound sort of makes me feel like I have just woken up in an alcohol-soaked haze from a long night of serious debauchery.   That alone is enough to make me sweat in anticipation of this release, but it gets better.  Much better.   I recently stumbled upon the insanely sexy publicity shots for the album.

Oh my God. Handsome, indeed.
