Sound Kapital, the new Handsome Furs album is avail for pre-order right G-D now!


As we have previously showed you about, there is a new Handsome Furs record coming out on Sub Pop on June 28th. It’s called Sound Kapital and though it is remotely possible that we have some sort of bias here, we think it is really terrific. But, you can see/hear for yourself by listening to the two free songs from the record which we are currently offering for free to you, free of charge. These songs (“What About Us” and “Repatriated”) are avail on the Handsome Furs artist page here on the Sub Pop internet place. Today, Pitchfork posted something about the most recently released of these two songs

Right now, Sound Kapital is available to pre-order on either CD or LP. And, there are two, kind of big deal things to mention about this pre-order!

1. From somewhat recently until at least when the record comes out on June 28th, when you pre-order the CD or LP, we will give you a 320k download of the entire record! This download will be available on your account page, sensibly enough, under “available downloads” after you’ve placed your order.

B. The first 350 people who pre-order Sound Kapital will also receive a 9-postcard set featuring photos taken by the band, all packaged in a fancy custom envelope. It is, as I am told they say, a “real classy piece.”

You could do worse, is what we’re saying.
