I interviewed MUTEMATH back in 2006 following the release of their debut self-titled album. I enjoyed the album very much, but at the time, I didn’t realize just HOW GOOD they were. Over time, that album grew on me more and more, and when their second full-length album, Armistice, was released in 2009, I fell in love with the band all over again, retraced my footsteps back to their debut, and secured a spot atop my list of favorite artists for MUTEMATH.
Fast forward to today and one of my most highly anticipated albums of this year, Odd Soul, did not disappoint me. In some ways, this one is their best effort to date. In other ways, they are all so unique and amazing in their own ways that I just want to call it a clean draw all across the board.
Either way, Odd Soul is nonstop elevated musicianship that bounces off every single genre wall. MUTEMATH is probably the single best example of a group that is honestly a sum of all of its parts. The drummer is among the best around today, the guitar riffs are well thought out, and the vocals are as close to perfect as it can come.
MUTEMATH is one of the best live acts touring today so if you get the chance to check them out, definitely do so. I, for one, will be in the front row enjoying every minute of it.
Here is the embedded music video for their latest single, “Blood Pressure.”
