Ahh, Present Company: Listen to MS MR cover LCD Soundsystem’s ‘Dance Yrself Clean’


Among the popular Halloween costumes of the past few years have been the classic James Murphy get-up — black blazer, white dress shirt, black tie. It’s easy and effective. What’s a bit more difficult than covering his look is covering his music, but MS MR seem up to the challenge.

The New York electronic pop duo took on LCD Soundsystem’s “Dance Yrself Clean” this week, offering a proper recording for a song they’ve covered earlier this year for Australian radio.

Here on the studio recording of the This Is Happening modern classic, vocalist Lizzy Plapinger and producer Max Hershenow take what was a throbbing, solitary-dance number and give it some swirling piano pop majesty.


Maybe on day they’ll all be on stage doing this one together. We can only hope.
