Múm. Please Smile My Noise Bleed

Morr Music - morr 020

In a way it was only a matter of time before múm would end up on Morr music. Anyone who has had the pleasure of listening to the Icelandic quartet’s celebrated debut album `Yesterday was dramatic, today is ok´ knows that múm’s `eye shutting-bicycle beats, sounds and melodies´ would feel suitably at home with the Morr.
This record came to be raw for múm, like raw carrot. In a way their maschines wrote the musik themselves, while múm were playing around on a mountain, lying down, standing up, running around. When they came back they were surprised by their beauty. This is where things started looping and feedbacking and even the old mountain radio swam in with a few random words and murmurs. A very old distant friend joined in singing, but only for a split second. When the songs had recorded themselves on tape, Thomas sent them out to all his nice guys who made new pieces out of them, each one special in its being musik:
Christian Kleine’s old mountain radio is playing a steady diet of old school electro pop. 8 bit snare drums and a deep massaging subbass manage to puta headnoddingly near-perfect groove into múm’s delicacies.
Styrofoam has the original múm melodies spinning out of control while somewhere along the way a vocoder and a steady kickdrum manage to sneak in.
Bernhard Fleischmann makes a happy return with some splendid cut-up old school hiphop action and the múm girls humming along gently.
Phonem turns múm’s clearcut melodies into shifting layers of grainy sound and deep textures, only to be interrupted by an ever evolving broken beat.
Arovane does what he does best. Lush homemade synths and basement beats. two step amx style so to speak.
I.S.A.N. contribute their dark and brooding cantena mix ? all deep analogue bass and persistently ringing bells with the original melody making only the vaguest of appearances.
» What is this múm?
múm is a musikal band of four. You could call them a quartet, but that would maybe be stretching the truth. Two years ago they crafted their debut album, `Yesterday was dramatic, today is ok´, in a small sweaty room. A few good folks were very happy with the record and urged them to do some more musik, which was totally unnessecary because they had already planned on doing so. And since then they have. They have worked with a lot of people, writers, singers, dancers, experimetalfolks, sadlaptopfolks, priests and activists to do all the things they could think of and some of it actually turned out pretty good. But now they are back to making some musik on their lonesome.
