Every Saturday every summer, MoMA PS1 presents Warm Up, an event series taking place in their enormous courtyard. The museum—MoMA’s longstanding sister site in Long Island City, Queens—is a lightning rod for new and exciting artists, and each week’s performers inhabit a similar space in the music world. As a warm up to Warm Up, FADER and MoMA PS1 will be posting an exclusive mix from one of the upcoming week’s artists. Today we’ve got Museum of Love, the new duo of LCD Soundsystem’s Pat Mahoney and Run Roc Records’ Dennis McNany, who’ll hold down this Saturday’s Warm Up with Caribou, Pional, SFV Acid, Empress Of and Terreke. Download Museum of Love’s mix, read a quick interview with both members and buy tickets here.

What is your favorite summer jam right now? The Juan MacLean/Sh*t Robot split single out now on DFA Records, and The Volcano Brothers “Obey A Man” edit of Exuma’s “The Obeah Man” on Beats In Space Records
What’s the best summer vacation you ever took? MAHONEY: Lake George every summer of my life. McNANY: Long Beach Island every summer of my life
Who is a visual artist that you admire, and why? McNANY: James Turrell. We actually wanted to debut the Museum of Love live show in one of his sky spaces. MAHONEY: Bruce Nauman for making “Learned helplessness in Rats (Rock and Roll Drummer),” which I want to remake as “Learned helplessness in Rats (Disco Drummer)”.
What’s your favorite summertime snack, and where do you get it? MAHONEY: Ipswich whole belly fried clams. Outside of New England, the only place you can get the real thing is Bigelow’s Rockville Center New York. McNANY: A Maine summer lobster bake is hard to beat, but I got to go with Jersey tomatoes.
