Rad Music // MS MR

leave a comment »

MS MR is a new band I really like. Their sound is a perfect blend of dark simple sound of The XX and the orchestrated soul of jj.

Their newest song, “Hurricane” is hypnotic. They have a four song demo EP that is perfect, start to finish. My favorites are “Bones” and their cover of Patrick Wolfe’s “Time of My Life.”

Watch the video for “Hurricane” below to get hypnotized. And give their demo, Ghost City USA, a listen. If you like it, head over to their Bandcamp to download it.

Be Rad. Enjoy.

Free mixtape for Monday // jj – “kills”

with one comment

If you have never heard of the band jj, I’ve got news for you: it’s time to get in the know!

jj are a duo from Sweden who tend to make some pretty chilled out rad tunes. They’ve released a couple LPs and some singles through the label Sincerely Yours over the past two years and they never seem to stop. Just last week, Christmas Eve to be exact, they put out a hip-hop mixtape that is nothing short of fantastic. Don’t let the “hip-hop mixtape” title scare you off; it’s not what you think. Yes, you will hear some Dr. Dre, Jay-Z or Kanye shining through, but, they are deceptively hidden amongst the sirenical serenade of Elin Kastlander. I don’t know what it is about her voice, but you can’t help but be entranced.

Like I said, if you’ve never heard (of) jj, you’re missing out. So, let this be a little introduction. Head over to Sincerely Yours to grab the mixtape for free. Take it as a belated gift from jj to me and then me to you. (^_^)

Be Rad. Enjoy.
