New York duo MS MR have released a bold cover of LCD Soundsystem. It is brave territory to explore—covering a band with such a distinct and influential sound. They didn’t pick an easy song either, choosing the opener to 2010’s This Is Happening, a 9-minute punk-dance scream-a-long. MS MR do a great job of making the song their own however. They inflect a different kind of other-worldly epicness as the original did but instead of an explosion of basement analog synths, they have horns that sound like they came out of a 70s action movie.
