[playlist] Hump Day Power Play (1-18-2012)

Dan Boeckner Edition

Last week's Power Play featured a playlist of songs from musicman Spencer Krug. It only seemed fitting to make this week's themed around his colleague and music-mate, Dan Boeckner. The yin to Krug's yang, Boeckner split vocal roles in the band Wolf Parade, offering a contrasting style and sound that allowed WP to explore different soundscapes. Boeckner also made sweet music with his wife Alexie Perry and delivered some incredible work as Handsome Furs. If you really want to delve into his catalog and hear some historical context, you can also check out Boeckner's earliest project Atlas Strategic (unfortunately not on Spotify). I've always thought of Boeckner as more of a rocker compared to Krug. At times, he even reminds me a bit of Springstein (and I mean that as a compliment). So go on and treat yourself to a wonderful Wednesday of Boeckner.
