Best New Music: Handsome Furs - "Face Control"
*MP3: Handsome Furs - "Legal Tender"
*MP3: Handsome Furs - "I'm Confused"
The new Handsome Furs record, "Face Control" (Sub Pop), is great. Add to the list of an already amazing year of music. "Face Control" contains just as haunting and as well-groomed songs as "Plague Park," but possess a certain quality of exploration that really moves the album forward and stakes the claim that this is a progression for the band.
