The "other" band from Iceland specializing in atmospheric arrangements are back! Múm have a new album coming out (Go Go Smear the Poison Ivy) and here's a teaser, the imaginatively illustrated video for "They Made Frogs Smoke 'til They Exploded" featuring children being drawn and torn apart. The music is nice and typical Múm, lots of bleeps and crashes and vocals all over the place and some harmonica thrown in as well. An excellent track! Just when I was lamenting a dry spell on the ol' new music radar. Yeah!
VIDEO They made frogs smoke til they exploded by Múm
And here's a free MP3 also from the forthcoming album "Go, Go Smear the Poison Ivy":
MP3 Dancing behind my eyelids by Múm
I have no comment on the song/ album titles - Múm may speak a different language but these titles are normal compared to those used by some English-speaking bands.
