The Take Off and Landing of Everything

Band of Skulls

Mutemath is one of the bands that Iíve really started to listen to on a regular basis. Their stuff isnít your normal rock music. Itís got some pop to it yes, but really itís the alternative genre updated. Itís made for fans of the music thatís not necessarily for everyone else. This isnít for fans of bands like Bright Eyes and that type of thing- itís not that big of a stretch. But itís for people who liked the type of alternative music from the 90s that was a little out there and super original. Mutemath is best compared to the bands that really made a name for the genre by doing things that nobody else was doing. With Mutemath, the music is top notch and theyíve outdid themselves on their latest album ďArmistice.Ē It sounds organic and robotic at the same time, it sounds like pop music and art-rock at the same time too. Thatís really something thatís special about this band. Mutemath canít be defined. On ďArmisticeĒ in particular they really canít be defined. Itís a bunch of things molded and meshed together to make a good listen. Just like everything else of this nature itís not for everyone but if you ever are in need of listening to something a little different but not too different- listen to some Mutemath. ďArmisticeĒ isnít something that can be defined in any amount of words- thatís whether you hate it or you like it. You wonít be able to say why you hate it or why you like it and thatís something that is missing from most music these days.
