CD Review: Mutemath — Odd Soul

[ 1 ] October 10, 2011 |

Mutemath Odd Soul Warner Brothers Records By Ellen Eldridge My interest in Mutemath reached its peak when I heard the term “mathrock,” because I assumed Mutemath would use more than the standard 4/4 time signature. I expected something of an intellectual band rich with musical texture, and style. Honestly, I don’t know why I thought […]

[ 2 ] February 23, 2011 |

We recently received a five-song sampler of the new R.E.M. album, Collapse Into Now (release date, March 8, 2011) at the office, and, if these songs are any indication, the boys from Athens are continuing on the upward curve they began with 2008’s Accelerate.
