Clever, edgy new release from Mythical Motors
Mythical Motors is at it again. The boys in the band have been busy producing a new album as well as playing a slew of gigs with the likes of Sir Army Suit and Thee FiNKS (choice pairings to say the least.)
Add to that the fact that the band’s own Matthew Addison is set to tie the proverbial knot in the upcoming weeks (congratulations on the pending nuptials) and one wonders where they found the time to write any new tunes at all, much less record them.
Yet somehow they found the time, and the result is 12 tracks collected under the title Reimagined Pyramid. This newest entry sports higher production values than earlier releases (to my ears, anyway) while still maintaining the edginess that is so key to their sound.
Too pretty for punk, too punk for pop, Mythical Motors once again captures the spirit of the best sounds of 1979 with overtones of Elvis Costello (lightly seasoned with a little Robyn Hitchcock, I think).
Clever music for smart people, Mythical Motors recaptures a sound that should never have been lost in the first place (damn you, ’80s pop tripe!).
Of course, it only sounds vintage to those of us who are, ourselves, vintage; to the kids it’s just going to be kick-ass rock and roll. To pick up your copy and to keep up with their upcoming gigs, hit the guys up through Facebook.
