Handsome Furs – “Serve the People”

Handsome Furs
My designer friend Mike Withers (who created this website) and I both agree that Sound Kapital by Handsome Furs is the best album of 2011. What we disagree on, however, is the song “Serve the People.” While he thinks it’s the album’s low point, I think it’s a majestic, power-to-the-people anthem that encapsulates the ragged glory and Springsteen-esque politics that mark much of Boeckner’s best work. It’s a powerful ‘fuck you’ to world leaders who don’t, ahem, serve the people.

Watch the song’s recently unveiled music video below.

I wrote about Sound Kapital for year-end features by Exclaim! and BeatRoute.

    Just so we’re clear — I still LIKE that song. It’s just not my favorite.

    Stop embarrassing yourself, Mike.
