Mute Math, 'Mute Math' (Teleprompt/Warner Bros.)

Mute Math
Critical Mass
Label: Teleprompt/Warner Bros

by Andrew Beaujon

Mute Math can seem hopelessly dorky -- they wear skinny ties, singer Paul Meany sounds like Sting, and they sued Warner Bros., charging that the label tried to market them as a Christian band and dump them on a Christian label. But here they put that behind, appending startling sonic codas to already blissed-out songs like "Stare at the Sun," with drummer Darren King finding space between skillfully echoing electric pianos, dub bass, and reverbed guitars. It's hard to capture on record how ecstatic the band's sweaty live shows feel, but "We All Break the Same" comes close.
