I had never heard of the band MSTRKRFT (made up of the duo of ALP + JFK) until I listened to their on point remix of Wolfmother's "Woman." I enjoyed that remix better than the actual song. While MSTRKRFT has been able to excel at making some great remixes and especially rock remixes that draw on JFK's Death from Above 1979 punk background there new album The Looks which features all original material is fun but not particularly memorable.

Give "She is Good for Business" and see what you think. I don't dislike the album all together I just think its a bit too safe. I felt like they really have pushed it with their remixes and while The Looks has good tracks with some good tempo overall it just doesn't stand out like their remixes tend to. Its not breaking any barriers but if you want to lest to some new electro-house-hyphy stuff and your into that sound give The Looks a listen.

Mp3: MSTRKRFT - "She is Good for Business"
Mp3: Buck 65 - "Kennedy Killed the Hat" (MSTRKRFT Remix)
Mp3: Death from Above 1979 - "Sexy Results" (MSTRKRFT Edition)

Buy it! The Looks from inSound here.
