With a gentle touch, Icelandic band, múm paints an epic soundscape fit for a fantasy movie scene with Illuminated from their new album, Sing Along To Songs You Don’t Know(2009/on groovy German label, Morr Music).
Their name sounds like this - “miooyyuujm” – maybe not what you’d think, but the sound of their songs is as you’d expect with titles like Illuminated, Kay-ray-ku-ku-ko-kex, Hullaballabalú, Moon Pulls and Scratched bicycle Smell memory. Okay, not really. I mean, what would you expect from that last one? It does sound super-cool, by the way. You can check it out HERE. But Illuminated, yes. Enjoy the serene animated video for Moon Pulls (with great sound quality) below:
Touring Europe now, múm is scheduled to be in the states starting mid-October. Los Angeleans, go see ‘em at El Rey November 6th.
