Odd Soul - Mutemath Album Review
So straight away I'm getting this Jack White, White Stripes sound going off and I'm more than very interested. In fact, I am checking out web pages for gigs and live action before the opener and title track 'Odd Soul' is done on its first outing. Track two fires up, 'Prytania' and its hectic, tight drums and punchy guitars, I am feeling Black Keys and White Stripes again. It is very catchy, an alternative blues-rock fusion.
My real standouts are 'One More', 'Blood Pressure', the album's first single and a brilliant video for you to check out, and the almost epic, well at least in my house, 'Quarantine'.
'Quarantine' is some kind of Zeppelin, Queen, mixed up psychogenic fuzzed up guitars building up, and switching tempo, firing drums. A bass riff that Mani ala Stone Roses, 'I am the Resurrection', would be well proud of. It's seven minutes of full frontal, gig closing 'epic' tune. It is fantastic and a real exciting track.
This is album number three from these guys from New Orleans. The first two albums are being purchased as we speak! I am a real fan of fuzzy guitars, Hammond organs and bluesy lazy guitars. And so I'm now a fan of Mutemath.
As for those gigs, they're only performing Stateside either side of the New Year. Hurry back Mutemath, the queue for tickets has begun.
