Wednesday, May 22, 2013 Mutes

Birmingham based self proclaimed  bedroom-gazer Mutes has a brand new EP out entitled...suitably enough given its minimalist feel...EP. Recorded in his bedroom on a few days off from work (I wish I was half as productive...) it's five atmospheric tracks that move from the echoing simplicity of Hope, etc through to the jangly shoegaze indie of M.P.D.G and on to the ambient soundscape of Inhabitants. Ending with Smother, a delicious melding of lo-fi vocals and hypnotic electronica, it's an impressively understated collection that gently works its way into your head...huge spliff optional. Mutes-iful stuff.
