There are a lot of things you need to know about MS MR, if you don't know about them already. First off, Lizzy Plapinger (MS) brings an almost soulful tone as a vocalist, unlike the often nasal-dominated world of female-led pop. She lets her voice take the forefront, rejecting the indie trend of muttering softly behind much louder instrumentals. Not only does her MR counterpart— Max Hershenow— bring keyboard to the ensemble, but also his experience in modern dance, which he studied at Vassar where the two musicians met. Both of them perform rather than just “play”, spinning away from the mic and keyboard intermittently to add in short, seemingly spontaneous dance routines, at least this what I found to be true at their recent concert in Philly at Union Transfer.
