I sell radio advertising. I make a point of dropping in to the studio every now and then to hang with the DJs. Not only do I believe it’s important they know I’m interested in what they do, I think that’s where the fun is.
The music director was hanging out with the mid-day man today when I popped my head in to talk with the “Reverend of Rock and Roll”. I had been wondering what is the favorite music currently being listened to by the music director (assuming it’s not Ingrid Michaelson) and he immediately pointed to Mutemath.
According to their website:
The members of MUTEMATH had reached their breaking point. Collectively gathered on the front porch of their New Orleans home-studio where they were struggling to record the follow up to their 2006 critically-acclaimed Teleprompt/Warner Bros. debut, the quartet screamed at each other with the full weight of the accumulated frustrations that had escalated from weeks of fighting. To heighten the tension, a lawn mower droning in the background drowned out their voices, inciting them to yell even louder in misguided efforts to be heard.
You can read the the rest of the story on their site but, before you do, take a listen to a band that makes Coldplay sound like a bunch of pussies.
