Mysterious Power

Artist: Ezra Furman & The Harpoons
Release Date: April 05, 2011

There’s a ferocity that tears through the length of Mysterious Power, crackling in the soundwaves no matter on what tone or tempo the album rests. Ezra Furman takes the helm of the Harpoons quartet with a brazen command of pathos, belting unapologetically about heartbreak, loneliness and suicide. Whether he’s blasting a frenetic monotone bark or settling into sweetly familiar melodies, Furman channels a savage energy into his ragged tenor. He nails a delivery that draws upon the theatricality of such frontmen as Pete Shelley and Dan Bejar, remaining unflappably likable throughout.
