New York duo MSMR released their EP this year via a somewhat convoluted tumblr-post process, toured with Marina & the Diamonds and GROUPLOVE and toured Europe. They also finished their album which is due out in May 2013. In June they released a mixtape of tunes they were loving – Track Addict Vol 1 (which featured Alt J, Beach House, tennis and more) and have now released a brand new collection, Volume 2 – featuring among others, NZ’s Ghost Wave!
“Like Vol. I, Vol. II highlights mostly new material from multiple genres featuring artists from around the world – MØ from Denmark, Haarlo from Australia, Sir Sly from LA, Ghost Wave from New Zealand, and fellow New Yorkers Alex Winston, Halona King and Foxygen, among others. We hope you find new songs and artists to love and that this mixtape helps get you through the holidays!” they write.

MSMR are headed to Australia in the new year to play St Jerome’s Laneway Festival and despite their eMail missive which claims they are playing Silo Park on January 28th (although they say, in their eMail, that Silo Park is in “Bega Nsw, Australia” there is, as far as Cheese on Toast knows at this point, no NZ date actually scheduled yet/ at all.
