Stream: Handsome Furs' 'Sound Kapital'

For Dan Boeckner of Wolf Parade and his wife Alexei Perry, the duo comprising Handsome Furs, musical inspiration has largely come from their travels. Their breakthrough sophomore album Face Control synthesized all that they absorbed from their expedition across Eastern Europe. Similarly, their third album Sound Kapital, out June 28, reflects their two year sojourn in Asia. From helping put on a show with a local band in Myanmar to staggering about the streets of Tokyo with complete sensory overload, they scrambled to take everything in, understand it, and express it. With tracks like "Cheap Music," intentionally unpleasant sounding, and "When I Get Back," admitting they "won't be the same no more" after their experiences between punchy synth beats, they accomplished just that.
