Chicago musician and songwriter Ezra Furman began his career with the band Ezra Furman and the Harpoons. They formed at Tufts University (near Boston) in 2006, and had a run that included three albums. In 2012, Furman raised money through Kickstarter to record and self-release his first solo album. He signed to a label and received great critical acclaim for his second album, particularly in the UK. With album number three, Perpetual Motion People, Furman is really hitting his stride. It's an intriguing punk-leaning mix of Ezra Furman's personal lyrics delivered in his frenetic, urgent singing style, plus 1950's and early 1960's rock and doo-wop vocal touches. Also- sax solos!
