Mumble – Happy Living


The ‘Sounds Like’ descriptors below accurately describe the sound of Mumble, imho. This is basically straight ahead rock, but not the mind-numbing stuff they play on top-40 radio. This should be on the cooler parts of the radio dial and on every college radio’s playlist, if not your ipod. This album is filled with: down, mid and uptempo rockers, anthems and tales of life’s journey. A very generous mix.   Take a wee bit of time and follow the links and  listen to more; and maybe their label mates at the Marathon link below.

Live performances come off more as taut displays of interwoven musical exercise with bursts of emotional and sonic fury. ..
