Songs for Singing + Mute Math

June 2nd, 2011


If you’ve been hanging around here long enough you may have heard of Songs for Singing. The original premise behind it was to share songs that have lyrics and can be sung along with. Sometimes an occasional ambient track set will slip in. Songs for Singing is really just another way for me to share my favorite artists with you at the hopes you’ll enjoy them equally as much.

On deck is the 2009 Mute Math album titled Armistice. Numerous times I’ve found myself really diving deep into my design when the track Clockwork plays. Itunes claims the genre as “Rock”; I call it Rockin. Now it’s your turn to be the judge. If you have any suggestions for Songs for Singing, let me know.

Pick up the album here.

  1. I was very surprised to see this on here. Surprised in a good way though. Great band. They aren’t afraid to experiment. Also, they run around like crazy at their shows.

    I was also surprised to see this here. I am a huge mute math fan and have been for years. What great live shows! I also design while listening to them, its funny how the music you listen to while you do things totally effects the outcome.

    Glad to see it was a pleasant surprise to post Mute Math, thanks guys! They’ve definitely resonated with me over the years. I’ve always found it very interesting how different sounds bring out certain parts of us and allow it to flow into our work.

    I’m a big fan of Mute Math. Their style is interesting and they hit different genres in my opinion. You should check out there other albums I’m sure you’ll find it enjoyable. Here is one of my favorite tracks by them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1BThlc1Cm8

    My playlist a couple of nights ago consisted of Mute Math + Paper Route on shuffle. I would recommend everyone listen both on shuffle as well for optimum creativity / productivity.

    A bit of trivia: Mute Math’s self-titled album was designed by Paper Route’s JT Daly. Mute Math’s “Armistice” was designed by Boyd Dupree (the dad of 4/5 of the band, Eisley). Mute Math’s drummer, Darren, is engaged to Stacy (one of the two lead singers of Eisley).

    Shelby, your tastes in art and music are great, man. Keep it up.

    Wow, yeah, hugely pleasant surprise to see MM on here! I haven’t really gotten into their new album, but I love their first one (and the preceding EP)… I grew up listening to the drummer and vocalist’s old band, Earthsuit. I highly recommend you check out their album ‘rise of modern simulation’ (if you can find it…)! If you ever get the chance to see MuteMath live, do not miss that opportunity.

  8. Pat Dryburgh says:

    Fantastic choice on this album. Mute Math are incredibly talented, wonderfully creative musicians who push the envelope and create beautiful landscapes with their music. I’ll never forget picking up their first EP and almost wearing it completely out from over-playing it.

  9. Hiram says:

    Awesome choice! I’ve been a Mute Math fan for as long as I can remember, and I also listen to them when designing/coding. I’m looking forward to their new album being released on October 4 later this year.

    I agree with Zach above; you’ve got great tastes in art and music!
