Show Review

Before the release of their first EP back in Septemeber, little was known about MS MR other than the fact that the band features Lizzy Plapinger as the MS with Max Hershenow as the MR. Now the formerly Tumblr-obsessed duo has released their proper debut, Secondhand Rapture, a collection of powerful, experimental-pop songs.

MS MR and their backing band took the stage at Hype Hotel in Austin for an enthralling live performance of their triumphant new album. Plapinger truly commands the attention of the crowd, performing with brooding intensity despite her pleasant stage presence. Check out our concert of the New York-based duo, which contains an array of synthy, drum-heavy songs and uplifting choruses.

Transcript

Dig up her bones but leave the soul
alone Boy with a broken soul
Heart with a gaping hole Dark twisted fantasy turned to reality
Kissing death and losing my breath
Midnight hours cobble street passages Forgotten savages, forgotten savages
Dig up her bones but leave the soul alone
Let her find a way to a better place
Broken dreams and silent screams Empty churches with soulless curses
We found a way to escape the day
Oh, oh, oh
Dig up her bones but leave the soul alone
Lost in the pages of self made cages
Life slips away and the ghosts come to play
These are hard times These are hard times for dreamers
And love lost believers
But leave the soul alone Let her find a way to a better place
Broken dreams and silent screams Empty churches with soulless curses
We found a way to escape the day
Candy bar creep show My highs hit a new low
Marinate in misery Like a girl of only seventeen
Man made madness And the romance of sadness
Beautiful dance that happened by chance Happened by chance
Dig up the bones but leave the soul alone
Let her, let her, let her, let her find
her way back home Broken dreams and silent screams
Empty churches with soulless curses We found, we found, we found a way to
escape the day
Oh, oh Oh, oh,
Problem lies in the answer I won't find
To the question I know that hasn't crossed your mind
Hope is dead, honey, catch my breath
Put this one to rest, Damned if I do and bored if I don't
Note what is in this place when you're caught up in this chase
We fear rejection, prize attention,
crave affection Dream, dream, dream of perfection
We fear rejection, prize attention, crave affection
Just another pop confession
Salt and swear I am up to no good
Get out now, If I were you I would Pick at my nails so they flake away
Until they leave my hands in bloody pain
The longer we linger The sooner we're born
The longer we linger The sooner
We fear rejection, prize attention, crave affection
Dream, dream, dream of perfection We fear rejection, prize attention, crave
affection Just another pop confession
Fear, prize, crave, dream Fear, prize, crave, dream
Fear, prize, crave, dream Fear, prize, crave, dream
Fear, prize
We fear rejection, prize attention, crave affection
Dream, dream, dream of perfection We fear rejection, prize attention,
crave affection Just another pop confession
We fear rejection, prize attention, crave affection
Dream, dream, dream of perfection We fear rejection, prize attention
crave affection Just another pop confession
York City.
what's up Hype Hotel? Woo! Thanks for having us.
You got high off my devotion Weak hearts as your crutch
Like some sick love potion I was addicted to your touch
Carried your weight, the misplaced rage Had the burden of hate
The decadence of decay
I still think of you And all the shit you put me through
I know you were wrong I still think of you
And all the shit you put me through I know now, I know you were wrong
You made pain your lover
Infidelity not discrete I knew you found another
How could I compete Abusive words cover me like dust
I waited to know for sure You only give us blood
Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh
I still think of you And all the shit you put me through
I know you were wrong I still think of you
And all the shit you put me through I know now, I know you were wrong
Dark clouds follow you around
Your own worst enemy You only picked me up to bring me down
Down, down, down, down
Down, down
I still think of you And all the shit you put me through
And I know you were wrong I still think of you
And all the shit you put me through I know now, I know you were wrong
I still think of you And all the shit you put me through
I know you were wrong I still think of you
And all the shit you put me through I know now, I know you were wrong
- Thank you.
- Thank you.
- This next one's a new single we just had out in the UK, just released a video for it.
It involves glitter puking cheerleaders, so if that's your vibe then we're the band for you.
So I hope you enjoy it.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Don't know what you think you saw You didn't know at all
Lost sight of who you are Woah
Came to make a connection Force myself in a dimension
Lost sight of myself
If I could force my heart, my ears, my mind
And eyes to get in line Maybe I'd find something real
Not a fantasy so divine Let myself down each time
Let myself down each time
How could you be what I wanted to see? How could you be what I wanted to see?
How could you be what I wanted to see? Oh, oh
When my reality Could never live up, could never live up
To my fantasy
Revolution from dissolution, hypnotizing and demoralizing
Pressure of the future, too much for today
How many hours will I let slip away
Before I realize existing and living Are not the same
Are not the same
How could you be what I wanted to see? How could you be what I wanted to see?
How could you be what I wanted to see? Oh, oh
When my reality Could never live up, could never live up
To the fantasy
Woah, woah, woah Woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah, woah
How could you be what I wanted to see? How could you be what I wanted to see?
How could you be what I wanted to see? Oh, oh
When my reality Could never live up, could never live up
To my fantasy
Woah
- Thank you.
Didn't know what this would be
Thought I knew I didn't see What you thought you saw in me
I jumped the gun So sure you'd split and run
Ready for the worst Before the damage was done
Oh, oh, oh, oh
The storm never came Or it never was
Didn't know getting lost in the blue It meant I wound up losing you
Welcome to the inner workings of my mind
So dark and foul I can't disguise Can't disguise
Nights like this I become afraid
Of the darkness in my heart Hurricane
Oh, oh, oh Oh
What's wrong with me Why not understand and see
I never saw What you saw in me
Keep my eyes open My lips sealed
My heart closed And my ears peeled
Welcome to the inner workings of my mind So dark and foul I can't disguise
Can't disguise Nights like this
I become afraid Of the darkness in my heart
Hurricane
Make ash and leave the dust behind
Lady Diamond in the sky
Wild light Glowing bright
To guide me Oh
When I fall I fall on tragedy
Welcome to the inner workings of my mind So dark and foul I can't disguise
Can't disguise Nights like this
I become afraid Of the darkness in my heart
Hurricane
Welcome to the inner workings of my mind
So dark and foul I can't, I can't, I
can't, I can't disguise Nights like this
I become afraid Of the darkness in my heart
Hurricane
- Thank you! - Thank you very much! - I hope we'll see you soon.
Have a fucking awesome South By.
