Tour Alert: Handsome Furs, Micachu mp3s

While we haven't covered the Handsome Furs that much, their most recent release Face Control (Sub Pop) is still holding strong on the 2009 playlist. Today they offered up a new mp3 "Radio Kaliningrad" and a slue of summer tour dates. Promise to do a better job keeping you up to date with these hot asses. Does anyone else think the hook to "Legal Tender" sounds exactly like "Dancing in the Dark?" Anybody? Bueller? Bueller?


Micachu and the Shapes, who have solidified themselves as one of, if not THE most promising newcomers of 2009 with their debut Jewellery (Rough Trade), have announced their summer tour schedule, which includes a previously announced date at Brooklyn's Siren Festival.
