MS MR is an electro-pop duo from New York. Their latest EP, Candy Bar Creep Show, is available now. You can check the songs out via streaming on their msmrmusic.tumblr.com page.
Attention DJs: they are making it super easy for you to play around with their songs by offering downloads of all their songs from Candy Bar Creep Show EP in individual "stems" format. These are basically all the layers and tracks to produce the final song. For instance, you can just get the isolated vocal tracks and dub it with other beats if you don't care for their version.
If you decided to remix their songs, send it in to them (their email is listed in your download) by October 31st. Winners will get their remix on MS MR's official album next year.
Earlier this month, Man Made Music featured MS MR as part of their "Primetime Salon" at Soho House in New York. The television/brand industry event included guests from American Express, ABC, Universal Music, MTV, Fiji Water, Lippincott, Sony Music, National Geographic and DirecTV.
Man Made Music founder, Joel Beckerman explained why he loves MS MR, "They infuse real emotion into the often cold electronic music realm in ways that really touch us. We expect big things from this band! It was a pleasure to bring them to the attention of all our friends in media and branding."
I did listen to their free streaming songs and I have to say it's pretty chill. I was expecting more upbeat powersongs, especially because I saw their touring mates Grouplove a few years ago and called their music "happy and cheerful." It should be interesting to see how MS MR's downbeat songs compare to Grouplove's more upbeat songs.
