Has it really already been over a year since Ms Mr released the overly infectious ‘Hurricane’? Since then the Brooklyn duo have been plenty busy, releasing a few new tunes along a decent amount of tour dates, all in the lead up to the release of their debut album Secondhand Rapture. Which, as luck would have it, you can stream below in full.

Crystal Fighters are keeping spirits high with their latest single ‘You & I’, a must listen with a surprisingly adorable accompanying video.
“You & I” is a song that “describes how time can fly by at warp speed, or slow down into a dream, when you are in love. All the craziness going on around you hardly matters, all that’s on your mind is you and your lover and that’s it. Everything can be happening at once, but nothing is important, not even time, when you’re together.”
Cave Rave is set to be released May 27th. There’s no irish tour dates as of yet, but the band will be stopping off in Toronto and New York this summer for those of you that are this side of the world.
Jagwar Ma’s tunes just keep getting longer and longer! ‘Come Save Me’ was a standard 3:34 min, while a couple of months later ‘The Throw’ was released clocking in at 6:53 min long. Next up is new track ‘Man I Need’, blowing the previous two out of the water @ almost 10min long!
Not that I’m complaining, each track I’ve heard from the Sydney duo has left me wanting more.‘Man I Need’ kicks off in a similar vein to their previous output – reminding me a little of Ian Brown, but what follows are the track comes towards the end is a surprise fuzzed out dance party.
Turn this up on your speakers, you’ll have plenty of time for a few drinks and a dance before the song ends!
