From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
MSTRKRFT a net-hack pseudonym, (read "Masterkraft") is an electronic music group from East York who are signed to Last Gang Records. The group was started in 2005 by Jesse F. Keeler (half of Death from Above 1979) and Al-P (Al Puodziukas, formerly of the Mississauga electropop group Girls Are Short).
Their first single was "Easy Love", released in 2006. The music video featured four large-lipped women in business suits drinking strawberry milkshakes. In the second half of the video, the women got onto dentist's chairs and were covered with strawberry milkshake that came from the ceiling. Critics dubbed it "Pepto-Bismol Bukkake". Although The Looks is MSTRKRFT's first album featuring original content, the band has created remixes from a varity of other artists ranging from Buck 65 to The Kills to Jesse F. Keelers own band, Death from Above 1979.
They have finished working on their first LP, "The Looks", which is set to be released on July 18th, 2006. It will only contain original material, including "Easy Love" and "Paris".
In an article in the Eye Weekly, MSTRKRFT told them that though they are finishing up The Looks, they are already in the planning stages of a follow-up record, which Al calls "darker, underground disco and house with elements of American rock music."
