OK, so it may have only been two years ago that James Murphy last played (and streamed live) as LCD Soundsystem in Madison Square Garden, but there is still a small little hole in our hearts that can only be filled by Mr. Murphy…or at least an amazing cover of one of his songs. MS MR have been performing an awesome live rendition of “Dance Yrslf Clean” and here we have a polished studio version, complete with some bumpin’ sax.
There’s not a regular picture of brand-new New York band Ms Mr at the top of this post because there aren’t any regular pictures of Ms Mr. The duo has decided to conceal their identities until the release of their debut album and their inaugural show in the fall. In the mean time, they’ve been busy offering a carefully curated list of artistic influences to curious journalists and offering the teaser EP Ghost City USA on Bandcamp. The EP, now available as a free download, includes a cover of Patrick Wolf’s 2010 single “Time of My Life.”
