Artist: Mstrkrft, Album: The Looks, Song: Easy Love

MSTRKRFT is an electronic duo from Toronto.  The band is Jesse F. Keeler and Al-P.  Jesse was a founding member of the band, Death From Above 1979 and Al-P produced their one and only full length album in 2004.  Death From Above split in 2006 paving the way for MSTRKRFT to take shape.  This particular track was the lead single on their debut album, The Looks, in 2006.  If you enjoy thick danceable beats, French electronica (ie/ Daft Punk, Les Rythmes Digitales, Phoenix) or Australian yachthouse (Damn Arms, Empire of the Sun) you'll really enjoy this song.  I apologize if I've completely confused you with all those band references but sometimes it is easier to compare than describe!  MSTRKRFT released a follow up to this album in 2009 entitled, Fist of God.  They continue to do remix work for a number of high profile artists and John Legend guests on their new release.  Their music is widely available on Itunes and Amazon.  You can follow the band at www.myspace.com/mstrkrft.  You can hear the song, Easy Love, on You Tube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yl8U368OG5Q&feature=related).  As always, you can hear this song and others that I blog about each day on Live 365 (www.live365.com/stations/raisedoncndnradio).  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
