Handsome Furs (Travel Nerds) now on


Yesterday the folks at the new announced the launch of a couple of new online video series, and one of those video series focuses on our own Handsome Furs! It’s called Indie Asia: On Tour with Handsome Furs and follows Dan and Alexei from Handsome Furs during their first tour across Asia, through China, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Thailand. They took two Flip cams with them on this tour and came up with some super cool stuff. This band is completely based, aesthetically and otherwise, on traveling, on absorbing places and regurgitating them in music, so it’s little surprise that they made such excellent travelogues. You should really take a look!

Available at, a new episode of Indie Asia is slated to appear regularly in the travel section of beginning on Thursday, January 21.

And, you can read the full news release from CNN on this and their new Vice/VBS.TV series as well right here.
