The Sound of MuteMath.


Electrify - Armistice

          The super villains are getting away; it’s the last stand as your going after them to conquer all evil and to win the heart of the love of your life. To save the world you’d need a proper band to listen to, so as you pull out your iPod, I’ll tell you what a proper band would be: MuteMath. 

          MuteMath consists the incredible sounds of the vocals and keys by Paul Meany, the bass and the guitar of Roy Mitchell, and the drums of Darren King. They have what I’d like to think is a modern twist on the integrated sounds and elements of psychedelia, electronica, and even some gospel (Paul Meany’s vocals). They’ve recently taken the music world by storm with their album release of Odd Soul.

           You can hear a large spectrum of influences in their music, which helps shape it to this spectacularly shaped form, which is what makes MuteMath. It’s as if you took some Led Zeppelin from the Hard Rock genre with some Jimi Hendrix in the Psychedelic era, and threw them into the Tardis to time travel in the future to blend them with modern ambiance of electronica. What makes them even more unique; they’re based out of New Orleans, Louisiana. They’ve developed their sound the same way any master of music would: through experimentation. MuteMath seriously boldly goes to this territory, proving that random can be brilliant. If there’s ever an angry old man sitting on a porch saying “These whipper snappers these days wouldn’t know good music if it hit them in the face!” Hit him with some MuteMath (figuratively, not literally).  They’ve got some great sounds from the older days of rock and roll, and their style satisfies the thirst for that sound.
