Secondhand Rapture is the debut album from NYC-based, indie-pop duo MS MR. Lizzy Plapinger (MS) and Max Hershenow (MR) began their musical collaboration in December of 2010, recording in secrecy, at Hershenow's home studio in Brooklyn, NY over the course of 2011. Produced by Hershenow, with additional production and mix by Tom Elmhirst, Secondhand Rapture is comprised of 12 tracks and includes the band's debut single "Hurricane."
In May of 2012 MS MR mysteriously released the eye-catching video for their single "Hurricane," which was named "Best New Track" by Pitchfork and has since skyrocketed to over 1 million views. Noteworthy media outlets across the world were instantly captivated by the then unknown act's compelling blend of nostalgic, atmospheric pop. "Hurricane" was the first of three additional tracks ("Bones," "Dark Doo Wop," and "Ash Tree Lane") released off of the band's critically acclaimed debut EP Candy Bar Creep Show. Debuted via a unique widget on MS MR's Tumblr, the duo received praise for their unconventional EP to which The Guardian noted, "prepare to be blown away" and the Wall Street Journal raved, "a very promising debut."
