we’re back

We apologize for the technical problems and hope that all is well now. Unfortunately my last news post is gone for good, so here is my attempt at re-posting.

Handsome Furs have a new video for their song ‘Can’t get Started’ which was directed by the super talented Matt Moroz. You can see the video at Matt’s website: http://www.mattmoroz.com/videos.html.

A track from the album is now streaming at pitchforkmedia.com. “Up On Your Leopard, Upon the End of Your Feral Days” can be heard here. Also, it seems this will be the actual front cover of the album:

Also, here is a great quote from the Jagjaguwar site about the album:

In short, listening to “Random Spirit Lover” is like watching schoolchildren in a dress rehearsal for the annual Easter play. And though they aren’t old enough to know the occasion is anything more than pastel-painted eggs and edible bunnies, they wear the fake beards with confidence and style.

I can’t wait!
