Yeah, this is about a day late, but sometimes ye olde job gets in the way of a more timely post. Anywho, as you may or may not have heard by now, Wolf Parade’s Dan Boeckner and his shy better half, Alexei Perry aka The Handsome Furs, have teamed up for a brand new duotastic album called Face Control. It’s out on Sub Pop records on March 10, 2009.

(The opening drum beat on this track reminds me of Escape Club’s “Wild, Wild, West”, which of course was “inspired” by Elvis Costello’s “Pump It Up”.)
