Taking a break from the pinball machines, arcade games, and other entertainment vices lining the game room at their label Astralwerks' Manhattan offices, We Are Scientists' Keith Murray and Chris Cain shed the synths and treat us to an exclusive acoustic set of tunes off their new record, Brain Thrust Mastery.

Check out video of the duo performing the confessional ditty "Lethal Enforcer," as Murray's soaring trembles rap on relationship "common sense," and Cain's complimentary guitar work adds colorful layers to the wall of chiming six-strings. Then watch a rendition of album track "After Hours," highlighted by the tweaking ping of Murray's lead guitar work and vocal accounts of a late night romance well after last call.
