Mutemath
Odd Soul

My interest in Mutemath reached its peak when I heard the term “mathrock,” because I assumed Mutemath would use more than the standard 4/4 time signature. I expected something of an intellectual band rich with musical texture, and style. Honestly, I don’t know why I thought this way.

Again, I felt intrigue and liked what I heard from the stage, but never gave the music much of a chance. With the release of Odd Soul, I can wrap my mind around the song structure and intelligent lyrics. Read more about CD Review: Mutemath — Odd Soul; Playing Revolution Music Room, October 11

Jenny and Johnny
I’m Having Fun Now
Warner Brothers

Those who complain that Rilo Kiley does not have enough Jenny Lewis will have the same problem with Jenny and Johnny. Jenny and her flame, Johnathan Rice, basically trade songs on their coming out disc, relegating the other person to back-up harmonies and oohs and aahs. But they are both incredibly strong songwriters who sound sweet together. And the photo on the back of the disc is simply adorable (as opposed to the artsy, and over-red cover photo). This is two people in love having in love, so forgive them their trespasses. Read more about CD Review: Jenny and Johnny — I’m Having Fun Now; Playing Black Cat, September 16 – SOLD OUT!
