Go Go Smear the Poison Ivy LP

by Mum

Release Date: 27 September 2007

Format: LP Vinyl

Label: Vital


With the departure of Kristin Valtysdottir, the core of Mum is once again Gunnar and Orvar, but the band itself is larger than ever, counting in all seven people. •Eschewing an otherworldly, almost magical aura, Mum make experimental music that is naturally, effortlessly imbued with a pop sensibility. Mum’s new material bridges the gap between their universally acclaimed debut and their more expansive sonically detailed recent output. •Sonically warm, gorgeously rich and melodic, the band use an array of instruments (guitar, bass, drums, synths, laptops, cello, accordion, mutated brass) alongside electronic bleeps, washes, and beats, blurring the distinction between live band and electronic outfit.
•The campaign for ‘Go Go Smear The Poison Ivy’ will run well into 2008 with two UK visits this year, and further dates in Spring 2008, three singles, videos and a fully operational band playing sessions and providing mixes and remixes.
