TBT – “Handsome Furs Hate This City” by Handsome Furs

A short-lived but extremely fruitful Canadian indie collaboration.

“Handsome Furs Hate This City” by Handsome Furs
Plague Park (2007)

Handsome Furs was the work of Dan Boekner and Alexei Perry. The two were married but sadly broke up in 2012, which killed the band. For those not immediately familiar with Boekner, he is one of Canada’s most prolific indie musicians and songwriters, responsible for major contributions to Wolf Parade, Divine Fits, and of course Handsome Furs. Handsome Furs made three great albums before breaking up in 2012.

“Handsome Furs Hate This City” is off their debut album Plague Park and represents their earlier raw-sound. The band later evolved to more dense electro on their final two albums Face Control and Sound Kapital.
