Listen Up - MS MR
What exactly is Tumblr glitch pop? Well, I’m not wholly convinced that it actually is a thing, but that is for you to decide…after listening to MS MR of course. They call themselves such a genre, and I am inclined to believe this, only because I couldn’t find a lot of info on the group...until I dug up an old press release in my email.
It seems that MS MR is a pop duo from – you guessed it – New York. Looking back at the musicians I have written about lately, they either had to be from somewhere in New York City or Sweden. I guess I don’t write about people from other places anymore.
MS MR is actually the musical moniker of Lizzy Plapinger and Max Hershenow (hence the Ms and Mr. GET IT!?!?). I like this better. It has a cool ring to it. Plus, there are always going to be people wondering if it is pronounced MSMR or Ms. Mr. or something else entirely.
For the record: “Ms. Mr.” are two people who are stretching the boundaries of what it means to be called pop, and with such a hipster coolness it would be hard to ignore them.
Here, just listen to some of what they have to offer (especially their latest, “Fantasy”, which previews their upcoming full length debut) and tell me that this isn’t a completely fresh sound, the likes of which have never been heard on P!B!B!
