Okay, last week I posted a MS MR’s track titled “Bones,” which simply put blew me away. The New York duo have released several songs, including “Bones,” from their upcoming EP Candy Bar Creep Show on their interesting Tubmlr account. You can actually download the stems to their songs off the Tumblr page to create your own remix of their songs — which Twin Shadow has done here. Pretty cool, eh?
MS MR’s Tumblr page is filled with pictures of the iconic Slash, 90′s films, and what some might call disturbing photos of mutilated bodies and emo, I deem brilliant and a refreshing perspective on life. When I tumble through their Tumbler blog it is blatantly obvious where the duo breeds their inspiration.
Remember when I said MS MR’s female vocalist was a privilege to listen to? Well, I was wrong she is a gift. Her vocals and writing abilities are a beautiful combination. However, in the “Hurricane” remix it is the male vocalist who steals the proverbial show, which concludes with an entertaining guitar riff and both vocalists singing in unison.
It was only several weeks ago that MS MR was beginning to gain recognition from the blogosphere and after this Twin Shadow remix, I am positive this NYC duo and their Tumblr will be making reoccurring headlines.
