Last time we caught up with NYC’s Murder Mystery they had just released their debut album Are You Ready For The Heartache Cause Here It Comes, which was produced by JP Bowersock (Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, The Strokes). Their sound very pleasingly melds classic pop jangle and reverb surf guitars with a modern weight.
They’ve got a free new single and remix for download – “The World” was self-produced, and mixed by Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Lou Reed). This remix below (by SF’s Bad Mammal) is something I like even better – the slinky retro mood of The Raveonettes meets the crisp sheen of Magnetic Fields.
