Mike was shocked the other day when I told him I had never seen Mugstar live. That is if you can imagine Mike actually registering anything as horrifying as shock. I think all of us here'd be quite disturbed to see his sleepy smiley face transmit such a contortion.
I enjoy Mugstar, I really their like new album and am currently trying to work out how it compares to 'Lime' which is the last one I concentrated my efforts on. It takes a considerable amount of effort for me to listen to an album all the way through these days without getting completely distracted by something random such as a dying bee or a stray piece of coloured fluff. Or a cup of coffee made by Kim.
I think my housemate just nailed it on the head when he said he knew he'd never heard this music before but there was something nigglingly familiar about them - I translate that as there being something universal and inclusive about their sound. Propulsion, repetition and implicit melodicism are the keys here. They're a psychedelic post-prog motorik bunch that don't try to be too clever or noodly. Mugstar create a heady, trippy world of their own without being pompous asses about it and when they bring forth the rock it's a twangy stoner shower rather than anything too bad-boy bludgeoning. Deftness of hand and subtlety - these guys are displaying in spades.Not much more to say except you should expect to get utterly lost in their expertly restrained brand of sky-gazing hypnotic flight. Music that should have a pulsating neon sign spelling out "bliss cruise' welded to it.
