NEW MUSIC – MUSEUM OF LOVE

MUSEUM OF LOVE – MONOTRONIC

While not a household name, Museum of Love is actually a collaboration between two of dance music’s most influential groups, in a way – Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem fame and Dennis McNany aka Jay Dee, member of uber hip house band, The Juan Maclean. This single, to be released on DFA mines their clear shared love for 80s synthesizer music, with its simple, Yamaha-on-demo-mode beat and vaguely morose vocals with the simplest of guitar strums for company before it bursts into glorious life at the 2 minute mark. Despite its sombre simplicity, this has a charm and beauty.
