Handsome Furs perform in WBEZ studios for Sound Opinions

Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry must really like spending time together. Not only are the pair musical partners in Handsome Furs, they're also a married couple. Now that Boeckner's main gig with Canadian indie rockers Wolf Parade is on hiatus the couple is spending a lot of time together. They've been touring their electronic pop music far and wide, even blazing trails deep into Eastern Europe.

When the duo stopped by our Jim and Kay Mabie Performance Studio to do a Sound Opinions session in July, they gave those tours credit for their dance music being infused with political ideas. This week's Live Music Thursday video is their performance of "Bury Me Standing" which Alexei dedicated to their friends in Romania. Listen to Sound Opinions this week to hear their interview; enjoy videos of their performance right now.
