And the best new band is . . .

Mute Math -- anyone heard of 'em? I saw a show a few months back in Lawrence, Kan. and they were incredible. I've become a huge fan lately. Seriously, they're going to be huge. They cite U2
The Police, DJ Shadow and Bjork as influences.

They'll be on the Craig Ferguson show Feb. 1.

Check out www.myspace.com/mutemath and let me know what you think.

(no, I'm not in the band nor do I have any ties to them. This is purely me sharing a great discovery.)

They sound a lot more like The Police than any of the other influences that are mentioned (based on the sample I heard at the site)

Cool. I'm glad you like them. They're incredible live too. Seriously. Tickets, at least for their upcoming show in Lawrence, are $7. And you can buy their debut album at the show, which isn't on sale anywhere else yet. These guys are going to be huge, I know it. There's such a buzz about them.
Seeing them live is truly an experience. The drummer, for one, duct-tapes his headphones to his head because he's so aggressive. Then the singer hops around stage like a mad scientist playing all kinds of instruments, including a keytar and one he made up called the Atari. They're just amazing.

Yeah, there's a couple songs where Paul Meany, the singer, sounds a lot like Sting. I actually talked with him at the show I went to —*he signed my wrist band and hung around between bands at his band's merch table to talk with fans — he said out of the albums that changed his life, The Police has like three or four. He also talked a lot about hi-hop and Sigur Ros, Bjork and some other Icelandic band. He was a really cool guy.

My favorite song of the band's is "Plan B," which you can hear at www.purevolume.com/mutemath.
You also can download a free MP3 of "Chaos" there.

From the five songs I heard, these guys sound really good. I like Chaos and Control! When is the new album coming out? Looks like their taking an extensive tour of the United States.

Yeah, they're taking a huge tour to build up a good fan base and then I think they'll release the album officially. Like I said before, tickets are only $7 (or about that much) and you can get the album before anyone else. I'm telling you, it's worth it. They're incredible live.

I like it. Very cool sound. Too bad you can't get the entire album yet.

Glad to hear you like them. You can get the "Reset" EP on iTunes. It has all the songs on myspace and purevolume except for "Chaos," which you can download for free on purevolume. Their debut full-length album should be available in a month or two, from what I've heard.

That leads to my next question.

Do any of the songs on the EP show up on the debut full-length album as well? Or is it entirely new?

Good question. If you go to the myspace site, there's a blog where they tell the song titles of the new album — none of the songs on the EP show up on the album. I actually was surprised, because the EP is amazing. "Chaos" is on the new album though.

You also can download an E-card on the myspace site and listen to "Chaos," another brand new song called "Noticed," and then a song from the other band touring with them (which I'm not really into myself.) The other new song of Mute Math's is really good too. It sounds even more like The Police. Not all their songs sound like The Police though.

Awesome.

I like the Dylan quote, by the way.
