Thanks to Can­sei de Ser Sexy’s Lets Make Love And Lis­ten To Death From Above, Jesse Keeler’s old band will live on for some time to come. Even be­fore Death From Above 1979 called it a day last Au­gust, Keeler’s vowel-less MSTRKRFT col­lab­o­ra­tion with Al Puodz­iukas (who pro­duced DFA’s ace You're A Wo­man, I’m A Ma­chine album) was al­ready on the tracks, turn­ing out note-wor­thy remixes for An­nie, The Kills, Bloc Party, Met­ric and The Gos­sip. It’s prob­a­bly be­cause of such ac­tiv­ity that MSTRKRFT seemed to emerge fully formed ear­lier this year, with a boom­ing, dash­ing and com­pul­sive sound al­ready in place for their de­but album, The Looks. Sup­port tonight comes from Aleko, an­other Ir­ish act pro­duc­ing ex­cel­lent sonic booms, and busy Back­lash boy Jon Aver­ill. If you’re still itch­ing for some dance­floor rock af­ter MSTRKRFT, check out Dubliner-in-New-York Mar­cus Lam­bkin’s Shit Ro­bot sound­clash at Space Camp on Satur­day.
