MSTRKRFT and John Legend are a bunch of Heartbreakers

Heartbreaker

i can’t look at you and you know why

MSTRKRFT – Heartbreaker (feat. John Legend)

I really don’t like MSTRKRFT. OK, I really don’t like MSTRKRFT on their own. Their remixes are usually super on point but their own tunes are usually borderline unlistenable. They have always been obsessed with their own image and when I saw them play live they seemed more interested in their cigarettes and Crown Royal then in playing any decent music (no remixes?!). Well, recently they recruited John Legend to do vocals on a track off of their new LP. The whole thing screams “cheap gimmick,” especially because “Heartbreaker” doesn’t sound like a MSTRKRFT song at all. It’s not self indulgent, it’s listenable, and by golly, I think I like it. It took a few few listens to get over myself my disdain for MSTRKRAP but I am sold. This song is a jam. And so is that artwork! (Waaay better than the album artwork.)

Bury your face in MySpace /// Johnny Legend too!
