Mute Math

So last spring my new housemate Kyle introduced me to this little band called Mute Math. I'd never heard of 'em so I didn't really know what to expect at the time. After being convinced enough from the 30 second iTunes samples... I bought the entire album to give them a real listen.

Now... Switchfoot has been my favorite band for years and I had actually just seen them in concert last spring when Kyle told me about Mute Math. Switchfoot had to scoot over pretty quickly after I gave these guys a few listens!

MUTE MATH ROCKS!!!!

I think one of my favorite types of music is music that can be played loud enough to hear it and feel it at the same time. That is Mute Math's forte! Through the summer I quickly memorized all their songs... all the while becoming a bigger and bigger fan of the group. When Kyle mentioned they were coming to Hollywood at the end of September... we weren't going to miss it!



Kyle, Preston, and I made it down to Hollywood and patiently waited through the opening act... guessing as to what song we thought they'd open with and whether or not they'd play the song they released with the Transformers movie earlier this summer. When they finally came out and played... I thought my ears were going to bleed! It was soooo loud... and there was so much energy! The drummer for the group is insane! He actually duct tapes a headset to his head because he goes absolutely nuts on the drums! So awesome!

The concert was great! My hearing seems to have come all the way back to normal! And now I wait... anticipating their return to SoCal... and the release of another album.


Let me know if you want to go with me the next time they're here... cause I'll be there! In the mean time take a listen to a little mix of their songs that I made... and if you really want to enjoy it... TURN IT UP!!!! Then go buy the whole album and turn it up louder still! :o)
