Editors’ Notes

A tension of opposites runs through MuteMath’s third album, Odd Soul. Serene vocals float above churning grooves while spiky guitar riffs stab at candyfloss melodies. The album’s musical complexity is reflected in multilayered lyrics, many of which touch on the band’s Christian roots. In the process, MuteMath achieves an unlikely fusion of ‘70s funk, ‘80s new wave, and classic prog-rock that propels its sound into challenging experimental territory. Drummer Darren King plays a particularly crucial role here, laying down ferocious, cymbal-bashing percussion on “Quarantine,” “Allies,” and similar tunes. Paul Meany’s lead vocals weave around the quivering keyboards and molten bass, rising to an effortless falsetto that conveys hipster cool with a hint of prophetic vision. The jittery boogie beat of “Blood Pressure” helps deliver a message against narrow-minded believers. Odd Soul ends with the luminous “In No Time,” a quietly passionate reaffirmation of faith that reconciles the jarring elements in this intoxicating album.

Customer Reviews

Mutemath MkII soar

As a big fan of this band I was interesting to see the direction they would take after the excellent, but criminally ignored "Armistice". The answer is stripping back the sound and layering in lashes of soul, funk, and blues. And it`s a genius, totally left field move that makes perfect sense on the sounds that emanate from Odd Soul.

The band have never sounded so tight, yet loose with songs that deserve, demand and crave repeated listens. The title track places us in Black Keys/White Stripe territory, but with more verve and subtlety than both. Prytania and All or Nothing are massive, full of hooks and brilliant melodies. The second half of Odd Soul places us in Blues/Funk/Soul territory. The sound they produce is dirty, funky and full of virtuoso brilliance.

So good, so funky

These guys have never disappointed me with their stuff. Their funky, edgy beats and truthful, relatable lyrics is what attracts me to their music. All I can say is they are purely genius and know how to work their music. Some of these songs make me wanna dance so bad when I'm in public lol. I've loved MUTEMATH the moment I was introduced to their music 

Old Rock; New name

The music in here is nothing new but it's strangely refreshing in these times of blandness, particularly within the rock sphere. And there is variety in the approach to each song. But... and it's a big but.... the vocals make me lose interest very quickly because they seem to lack dynamic and do not have that distinctive element which can raise an album above the run of the mill. Pity.
