Brooklyn-bred MOTHXR converged in studio and delivered a raucous, lively session. Watch "Centerfold," "Victim" and "Easy" above.
Frontman Penn Badgley, perhaps best known as Dan Humphrey on Gossip Girl, seamlessly makes the jump from actor to lead singer with a natural charisma.
MOTHXR belongs on two record labels: Washington Square in NYC and Kitsune (Paris).
