Faux Fur: Faux Fur

Faux Fur cover art
Faux Fur is the self-titled debut album from the Calgary based post-punkers. The ten tracks are quirky and original. The best way to describe this record is to imagine a minimalist, punkish version of Yes guitarist Steve Howe, teamed up with nondescript vocals and the rhythm section of Times New Viking. This is not your usual hook laden fodder, but rather is the showcase of a band willing to stretch the genre and themselves. The album could benefit greatly from a professional mix and mastering, but that aside is a nice piece of work for a debut. Stream and buy Faux Fur at the link below.
