A.V. Undercover

Chrissy And Hawley cover Erasure’s “A Little Respect”
About This Episode

Chrissy and Hawley come from different musical worlds. Chrissy (he’s the guy, perhaps confusingly) has spent the last 20 or so years making and spinning dance music, specifically of the Chicago-bred juke and footwork varieties, under the name Chrissy Murderbot. (His “my year of mixtapes” project could lead you down an incredible music-history rabbit hole.) Hawley is Hawley Shoffner, whose background is far more rock-centric: She leads a band named after her. But when Chrissy decided he needed a vocal foil for a new project, the two Kansas natives found each other, and the result is an electro-pop throwback joy that recalls The Human League. The duo’s self-titled debut came out earlier this year, and they were the perfect act to finish out this year’s A.V. Undercover, considering the final song. Here they are doing Erasure’s “A Little Respect,” originally released in 1988. See you in a few weeks for some holiday songs!
