Last week, mysterious duo MS MR started to unveil their 4-track debut EP Candy Bar Creep Show exclusively via Tumblr. After emerging from the ether this week they”ve released Twin Shadow”s remix of “Hurricane.”
Driven by a light trip-hop beat, dramatic string and electronic effects that are by turns swelling and subdued, and vocals washed in reverb, Twin Shadows evokes the same emotive magic he brought out of Niki and The Dove”s “DJ Ease My Mind.” Like “Hurricane,” a new track from the EP will be released each week with an accompanying video, artwork and an official remix on Tumblr, a site near and dear to the band.
“It”s no secret we have something of a sweet spot for Tumblr. We like to think of it as a cultural collage and feel like it”s the perfect platform for what we want to present with this EP … by releasing Candy Bar Creep Show on Tumblr, we”re free to present each song in a larger mixed media context, giving each song the opportunity to have its own identity and room to breathe and grow,” MS MR said.
The songs will definitely get a chance to grow, as the group is posting stems of each track–download “Hurricane”s” stems here–and allowing fans create their own remixes and submit them. The band will pick their favorites and put them in the official album campaign next. For now, you can pre-order Candy Bar Creep Show, which goes on sale September 18, iTunes.
