Caught Live! is making the best out of available video services that get to tape our favorite bands doing what they do best- rock their songs. Since nothing beats the real thing, we Google our way for those special live embellishments not available on MP3s, and MTV.
From Handsome Furs’ Sound Kapital, the band played “What About Us” for KEXP with much fervor, complete of free hugs and Dan Boeckner chilling with the crowd as wife Alexei Perry make superhero poses at her synths. The track is a standout from their third full-length built by French pop dynamic beats and catchy chorus as Boeckner throw the words like he usually does, profused wordplay that would redmark you if not catch with zest. Best moment is when he joins the crowd and Perry gives out the melodic, foot thumpers to the number. By the way, were they planking?
