Mum

Iceland pop experimentalists Múm were formed by Gunnar Örn Tynes, Örvar Þóreyjarson Smárason, and classically trained twin sisters Gyða and Kristín Anna Valtýsdóttir. Formed in 1997, the group met while working on a children's play. Smárason found his perception of music changed through hearing Aphex Twin and decided that he would abandon the guitar-based concepts of his prior bands. This was fine and dandy with his bandmates. Following a number of singles and remixes, the full-length Yesterday Was Dramatic -- Today Is OK was released in 2000 through TMT/Thule in Iceland and Tugboat in the U.K. Each of the band's four members was in their late teens when the record was released, hailed for its playful and imaginative use of all things musical and not so musical. 2001 saw the release of Please Smile My Noise Bleed on Morr Music, a compilation of remixes from the likes of isan and Arovane. A second full-length, Finally We Are No One, was released the following year on Fat Cat. Gyða left the band to focus on her studies before Múm's third album, Summer Make Good, arrived in spring 2004; the band rounded out the year with the Dusk Log EP. The next two years found Múm on the road. In 2005, the group collaborated with the National Dutch Chamber Orchestra at Amsterdam's Holland Festival on a piece inspired by the works of composer Iannis Xenakis. Múm returned to the studio the following year, and in the interim released a live album, The Peel Session, which was originally recorded in 2002 by the BBC. For 2007's Go Go Smear the Poison Ivy, the band was down to founding members Tynes and Smárason, who enlisted the help of guitarist/vocalist/violinist Ólöf Arnalds, trumpet/keyboard player Eiríkur Orri Ólafsson, vocalist/cellist Hildur Guðnadóttir, percussionist Samuli Kosminen, and multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Mr. Silla. The group recorded their fifth album, 2009's Sing Along to Songs You Don't Know, in Finland and Estonia as well as their native Iceland. Fans had to wait four more years for another new studio album from the band, although they weren't entirely bereft of new product, as a Christmas EP, Gleðileg Jól, was released in 2011, and a compilation of early tracks in 2012 entitled Early Birds. Early in 2013, a track entitled "Whistle" emerged -- a surprise collaboration with none other than Kylie Minogue. That September, Múm released their sixth album, Smilewound, which featured the Kylie track and marked the return to the group of Gyða Valtýsdóttir for the first time in ten years. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

I'v never herd of Mum, I like it
Mum is a striking enough find to make me pull them up from amongst all the tabs and leave this comment. Good music for someone with a lot to think about.

mum's music tends to make me smile and relax
See what 10 months of winter and darkness do to you? Smoke some meth then get back in the studio.
i will make it to iceland one day ... the music is dreamingly angelic
lovely
Icelandic music rocks.

I was told I would like MUM at a party.. and for months i was hexed I could no re-discover this band that a friend showed me while i was rolling...
Months later I figured it out with allot of hunting on limewire 2008
I can honestly say it is exciting and somewhat magical to have found this group's music.. like somebody said in a prev. comment mushrooms optional :) but.. if you listen to Finally We Are No One ..
since the passing of the synth programer.. the group has lost its luster :(
Sigur Ros me, Board me Oh Canada...me likey.

the discography on Pandora is missing their 2007 release, Go Go Smear the Poison Ivy.
Wow, these guys have their own unique style, sort of a cross between
Autechre and Enigma.
Mum will probably be my favorite band, forever. i only wish i got to see them live when gy(whatevert h i s l e t t e r i s ) a was still in the band.
You should get a rapper!!! . .. Im also not serious!!!

This stuff is the cats pajamas. Beautiful! everybody should go buy "Yesterday was Dramatic Today was ok" "Finaly we are no one" and "Summer Make Good"....tho s e 3 albums will make your ears cumm ;) thank me later..and if u ever get the chance to see them live....do it!!! mushrooms are optional lol
mum is the s**t along with a lot of Icelandic music. not for the simple minded though.
thegertz

Sing me to sleep bitter little angels.

Singer sounds like she is 4.
very nice
sheesh, is iceland the psychedelic candyland of spaced-out happiness or what?! bjork, sigur ros, mum... the list goes on... i was sad when i heard about their economic troubles, but then, that kind of thing is said to breed more artistic activity, so maybe it's for the best in the long run...

Please Sing My Spring Reverb Amx is the song of the gods.

K / Half Noise on Finally We Are No One is so good I just cried.
Cried.
good stuff! beautiful.
greatest band in the world
This is my favourite music byfar. Nothing compares.
I just discovered Mum, and I love them.

Very tasty.
do u guys think mum is newage?
I leave Pandora humming along in the background, and once every week or so something crawls on up through the background noise and arrests me...the Mum track was one of them, must hear more!
the more i hear, the more i love... a great sense of textures and striking juxtapositio n s . . . . some tracks are a bit repetitive, but there are always uses for those, too (background, zoning out, sleep, etc.)-- and semi-random variations of sounds are beautifully continuous. thank you for bringing something unique to the world.

If you're a fan and ever able to catch a live show of Mum, your absence should be inexcusable. Hearing a live performance sent chills down my back, not to mention being front and center and SO close to them all. Truly amazing...

Yea I first heard Mum at my high school's first modern dance show. This troupe came in and played it to one of their sets. The dude said who it was by and i forgot to look them up. years later, my dad asked me if I had heard of them and I said yea, I've only heard one song though. So he introduced me to pandora like a year ago and I made a station, and I'm like yup, Mum rules.
i love you all, orvar especially.
nomoremeplea s e
