Sound Kapital

Handsome Furs

Sound Kapital

Sub Pop

Again and again, Sub Pop cements its reputation as one of the most consistently good record companies.  The third album of one of their lesser-known acts is no exception.  Comprised of husband and wife Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry, Handsome Furs are an electronic act that sound in the vein of the genre’s earliest, highly pop-influenced tracks (think ‘80s electronic).  Previously known for their impeccable sample use, in Sound Kapital Handsome Furs have foregone their sample-heavy sound of the past for a record entirely composed on highly synthesized keyboard.  It’s just as good as anything the two have produced before, but with a higher degree of individuality and maturity reflecting the entirely self-written, composed tracks the album is made of.  Anyone who is a fan of melodic, synthesized electronic will certainly enjoy Sound Kapital.
