    Day Of The Dog

    " his songs come off as intelligent, angry, funny and ferocious. Furman sings every song like it's going to be his last."

    - American Songwriter Magazine


    Ezra Furman has always positioned himself as a singer-songwriter with or without the Harpoons. His acoustic based music would sometimes rock or burst forth with technicolor pop flourishes. On 2012's The Year of No Returning the production was especially
    sophisticated but now like Dylan in '65 he is ready to harness the electricity and delve a little deeper into life as a rock and roller with punk panache.


    On Day of the Dog Ezra re-invents himself as an angry young man ready to throw himself on the pyre for the redemption that will follow. With a tight rockin' combo he re-works '50s grooves through primal-Lennon outbursts, glam hissing, right up and full circle into Pixies-style/Buddy Holly rave-ups. It's an instant classic that could have fit on Stiff between Costello's debut and the Damned.

    The Year Of No Returning

    "Furman's poignant lyrics are more prominent than ever and pack a hell of an emotional punch."


    - AllMusic.com


    Bar None now has vinyl for Ezra Furman's previously self-released The Year of No Returning.  This cycle of ten songs designated for the months of the year (Jan and Feb. are missing) aim for the self-professed "lofty goal of real protest."  Ezra Furman is a young singer-songwriter with a punky spirit who is not afraid to cram a lot of words in among the hooks and jabs. While taking one for Team Earth he is determined to remain standing in the ring at the center microphone bloody but unbowed.

    Perpetual Motion People

    Perpetual Motion People was recorded with Furman's current band The Boyfriends - comprising Jorgen Jorgensen (bass), Ben Joseph (keyboards, guitar), Sam Durkes (drums) and saxophonist Tim Sandusky - at studio Ballistico in Furman's home city of Chicago (though he's currently based in San Francisco). The album kicks off with 'Restless Year', about which Consequence Of Sound described as, "a ball of energy, bouncing around genre borders with glee. There's the rebellion of '90s indie rock, a string of sunshine-y '80s pop, and the snarl of '70s punk."


    "The opening lines of my records tend to be summary statements," says Furman. "Every year has been restless, physically and even more internally." Hence the title Perpetual Motion People, "That's who it was made by and that's who it's for. People who feel they can never settle. I'm restless in most aspects. I don't tend to live in one place for long. I am always changing the way I present my gender. My religious life is intensely up and down in terms of observance and personal convictions. I've always viewed the idea of truth itself as something wobbly, always slipping out of our grasp. That's what the songs are about: a head that is haunted, a society I cannot join, a lover who is perpetually in the act of leaving. A central idea is the fugitive or runaway, in a hideout built in the midst of an unfriendly or alienated world."


    "The other aspect is a feeling of expansiveness, the largeness of emotion, from joy to pain. Some people think life is small or confined, but to me it's just big, and I'd say each song has something to say, to declare themselves large. It's also to do with trying to make something that a lot of people would listen to after Day Of The Dog got some kind of increased attention."


    In that, he's done his job, switching from the sinewy jubilance of 'Hark! To The Music' to the wistful heart-ache of 'Ordinary Life', from the power-pop snarl of 'Tip Of The Match' to the wracked country blues of "One Day I Will Sin No More". The waterfront covered marks Furman out as a true original, tapping avenues of music that most others have left alone, or wouldn't have the guts to emulate. "There's rarely been a scene that I've wanted to be part of," he admits. "I'm just not hearing other stuff out there that I wish existed, so that's my goal, to do it myself.


    Ultimately, Furman declares, life in perpetual motion is, "a good way to be. If you are never on a sure footing you don't get bored and the world is always new. It causes a lot of pain as well, but it seems worth it, and it is probably the only way I know how to be."
