'Girls & Boys Presents MSTRKRFT'
Remember that disco-pumpin' metallicized bass/keyboard player dude from Death From Above 1979? Not missing a beat after that rock band's premature demise, said four-string thumper immediately put all his eggs in his already existing electro-dance basket, MSTRKRFT ("MASTER KRAFT"). At times, these club-ready ass-shakin' jams still evoke a crunchy bass DFA1979 sound, but amped up are rubber-band-snappin' keyboard squiggles. They're touring for the brand new Fist of God but you may know them better from their many remixes: Metric, Bloc Party, Wolfmother, Justice, etc.
