REVIEW: MSTRKRFT - “Runaway”

MSTRKRFT is the brainchild of Canadian artist Jesse Keeler, known for his work as a vocalist, keyboardist and bass player with the furious garage rock duo "Death From Above 1979."


Keeler must obviously really love keeping line-ups in pairs, because MSTRKRFT is another duo, this time featuring Alex Puodziukas, who contributes to the sound with a blast of retro electronic sounds and electro-house influences.


Keeler's punk roots and Puodziukas's fuzzy electronic elements are channeled into a sound that feels gritty and textural, yet precise and punchy, bridging the gaps between depth and immediacy, while remaining engaging and dance-floor friendly.


Recent single "Runaway" is a taste of "Operator," the band's most recent studio effort. In a sense, this song almost indicates the nature of MSTRKRFT as a slicker, sexier and less aggressive version of Death From Above 1979, while retaining the dirty spirit of Keeler's most well-known act. With its choppy and glitchy grooves, "Runaway" shows an upfront, yet polished sound that reminds me of what could happen if Jon Hopkins had the chance to travel back in time to jam with The Stooges in the early 70s!
