Handsome Furs news

Wolf Parade co-frontman Dan Boeckner hasn't been nearly as busy as Spencer Krug during the band's downtime, but he has a musical side project of his own with an impending release. Handsome Furs, which pairs Boeckner with his fiancée Alexei Perry, are set to release their debut album, Plague Park, May 22 via Sub Pop.
In an interview published today on Pitchfork, Boeckner described Handsome Furs as "basically Wolf Parade without the guy that everybody likes and no real instruments." Last I checked guitars and keyboards (which Bockner plays, while Perry programs beats with a drum machine) are real instruments, but far be it from me to disagree with a highly successful indepent artist. Here's the tracklist.
01 What We Had
02 Hearts of Iron
03 Handsome Furs Hate This City
04 Snakes on the Ladder
05 Cannot Get, Started
06 Sing! Captain
07 Dead + Rural
08 Dumb Animals
09 The Radio's Hot Sun
Finally, the band has set up a MySpace page, where you can stream one of the forthcoming tracks, "Handsome Furs Hate This City." Click here to check it out.

I like Boeckner, but you know, that's just me.
