Fur - Image on the Reverse (Self-release)

Fur hasn't found what they are yet, but these sleek, oscillating synth grooves seem to fit them quite well. Their first full-length sounds significantly unlike last year's EP, which, itself, had already diverged considerably from the band's 2010 debut. They went from pristine, spacey indie rock to distortion-stormed, echo-effected shoegaze; and now on Image, the local quintet excavates new wave. Feedback fog dissipates and danceable beats pop to the forefront; they've bridged the dark caustic fuzz of NIN and the nocturnal post-apocalyptic ballroom ballads of Depeche Mode. This is familiar territory for post-punk pros, but for Fur, it's still new ground. —Jeff Milo 


Fur has an album release show Saturday, Dec.15, at the Loving Touch in Ferndale. FAWN and Pewter Cub share the stage
