Maybe it’s the gloomy weather and constant rain we have been having recently but I have not been able to get enough of LA’s dark pop MXMS (Me and My Shadow). It also could be that I just love dark music and this shit is good.
Their latest release is RX, the B-side to OMG.
Both singles are available digitally today on iTunes, while a limited-edition 7″ will be available via Grand Jury on July 24th.

MXMS made a vow to to create their art as naked as it reads. Dubbing themselves “funeral pop”, they only used an upright piano, a kick drum, and an old church organ to wrap around Ariel’s haunting voice on their first 5 pieces. From the sound of the past two songs, they are keeping the vow they made, the music is both naked and hauntingly beautiful.
