Handsome Furs live photos at Bell House 4/14/11

Montreal's Handsome Furs l which is Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade) and his wife Alexei Perry, treated Brooklyn fans to a large preview of new songs off their forthcoming third album titled Sound Kapital, which will be released on Subpop on June 28th. The duo played a very driving and uptempo set despite the sound was a little muddy. They played all the classics from the first two albums and many songs off their upcoming album including "What About Us" which you can download at the bottom of this post for the price of an email. Barefoot, Alexei was dancing up a storm on every song in very, VERY short dress and would fall down on the floor after many of the songs. Her husband was dressed in as the thin white suite and kept the crowd entertained while delivering vocals, guitar and keys. Super sad their fellow Montreal opener GRIMES was un able to play due to visa issues. Cinnamon Band took her opening slot.
