Video: MS MR Cover LCD Soundsystem’s ‘Dance Yrself Clean’ For Triple J Radio


We were presented with the beauty of MS MR‘s newest video only a couple weeks ago, and while I thought that should hold me over for a while before they decide to release some new tracks off of their forthcoming debut full-length (Second Hand Rapture - set for release May 14th via Columbia), they decided to surprise us with a rendition of LCD Soundsystem‘s “Dance Yrself Clean”, recorded in Sydney’s Triple J Radio during their recent stint in Australia.

For their cover of the late LCD Soundsystem classic, the duo – backing band in tow – creates a more stripped-down version of the song, led by the gorgeous vocals that we’ve been loving ever since first hearing  “Hurricane” (a song that has been played on my iTunes 100+ times, mind you) – regardless of whether Lizzy feels like she sings B.V.’s – and of course, their signature dark synths.

The duo is set to embark on a small tour supporting recent Laneway friend Jessie Ware (who performed her own cover yesterday), so be sure to check out the two out in a city near you!
