MUTE MATH

Mutemath_1I ran across a link tonight to a band called Mute Math.  I downloaded them on iTunes and am seriously digging it. I don’t know anything about them, but I sure like their name – "Mute Math."  That is a good subject to mute.

The song, "Control" reminds me of Midnight Oil.  Remember them? 

They’ve definitely got an electronica/jazz/rock mix going on. 

Link to their site.

    It was really bugging me. Now I know.

    What’s the meaning behind the band’s name?
    Paul Meany: As I was writing new songs, I was beginning to change perspectives. I began to write these songs not out of trying to figure out more, but trusting more and letting go. I allowed myself to finally realize that everything in life doesn’t have to have a finite formula or explanation. What we experience in life and how it affects us goes beyond mathematical boundaries. The sooner we can accept our uncertainties, the more certain and hopeful our future seems to become.

    They do rock. Took me a half hour of listening to clue in (from the lyrics) that they were a Christian band. Sweet.

    Thanks for clearing up why the band is named Mute Math. That was bugging me to.

  5. That is really weird. I was listening to Mute Math online, yesterday. You may already know this, but Mute Math is what became of what was left of the band, “EarthSuit.” http://www.christianitytoday.com/music/artists/earthsuit.html
    “Kaleidescope Superior” was the cd that made me a fan. The Mute Math Cd is great and feels very similar to the old band, especially in the jazz influenced and complex drum patterns.
    Cool, now I’m a music critic… Rock on.

    I absolutely LOVE Mute Math. I think they have one of the most creative and amazing sounds around. And if you think their CD is amazing, just to and see them live! Absolutely amazing.

  7. Marc says:

    Yes indeed, what a superb band that is.
