Few albums this summer have been as absorbing as the Handsome Furs’ Sound Kapital. Drawing inspiration from the streaky, damaged soundscapes of Eastern European electronica, Sound Kapital coasts on its immaculately programmed beats and stop-start rhythms. The result is metallic and eerily dystopian. One can imagine the album blasting out of Ukrainian discos circa 1982. It’s worth noting that Dan Boeckner and wife/co-instrumentalist Alexei Perry hail from Montreal, not the Soviet Bloc. Yet they seem to view ’80s industrial dance music through an affectionate, if droopingly nostalgic, lens. “Memories of the Future” and “Repatriated” ride waves of broken Casio pads. Meanwhile, the restless percussion on “Cheap Music” conjures images of squalid Odessa nightclubs and sweaty MDMA trips. All of Sound Kapital’s compositions were written on a synthesizer, ensuring that they sound much different than Boeckner’s punk-leaning work with Wolf Parade.
