Album Review: Handsome Furs - Sound Kapital (2011 LP)

“When I get back home/I won’t be the same no more.”

Handsome Furs‘ latest release Sound Kapital was inspired by the husband and wife duo of Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry’s tour of Asia - in particular, the time they spent in Burma with bands who were forced to perform underground, away from their oppressive government and with minimal access to electricity and recording equipment.

Luminous Festival: Battles + Palace of Fire - Sydney Opera Theatre (31.05.09)

After months of hype and anticipation, Brian Eno’s Luminous Festival has finally arrived; the main feature of Sydney’s groundbreaking festival of light, sound and culture - Vivid. Late last week, the festival kicked off with the lighting of the Opera House Sails, and the opening of Brian Eno’s 77 Million Paintings Exhibit. I highly recommend giving both a glance before the festival ends on June 14th (alongside Eno’s “Pure Scenius”). And this weekend, we saw the first in the series of live concerts – here, featuring Sydney’s Palace of Fire and New York Cities’s Battles.
