Seven minutes! Woo! We’re getting into the home stretch now, as the minute has turned for the final time en route to our destination of 7:55. Did you stay up until midnight watching a homemade ball drop, as if it were some kind of New Year’s Eve, ready to sound your noisemakers in celebration of this new minute? … No? Um… neither did I. Nope, not me!
Speaking of countdowns, the Handsome Furs’ Sound Kapital was one of my top ten albums from 2011 and “No Feelings” was a big part of the reason why. I mean, it’s seven minutes long! It’s going to be a big part of any album! Actually, the whole album was very consistent, with strong tracks up and down the list. In the year since, the Handsome Furs broke up, with Dan Boeckner going on to join Spoon’s Britt Daniel and friends in the Divine Fits, whose debut album came out this summer. Will Boeckner place albums in my top 30… or even the top 10 two years in a row? Stay tuned to find out in December!
