Mute Math

Mute Math's publicist was bombarding my inbox prior to the band's appearance in Columbus a few months ago. I didn't know anything about the band, hadn't heard any music, so basically blew off those emails. The week of the show I find out that Bel Auburn is opening the show but even that isn't enough to get me out of the house or even to check out Mute Math's music. Eventually I gave in and decided to check out the band and ... of course ... turns out that I love them. The

comparisons to The Police are totally accurate in my opinion and as someone who truly loves Sting's stuff - even his most recent solo material - I can't tell you how happy I was to "discover" Mute Math even though somebody had been trying to shove them down my throat just a few weeks earlier.

This summer the band will be playing on, get this, the Warped Tour, the Bonaroo Festival AND Lollapalooza (too bad WOMAD isn't still around; Mute Math would have been a shoe-in). Watch the band's performance of "Chaos" on the Craig Ferguson show (above) and then listen to the studio version of the song (below).

If you dig it, make sure to pick up a copy of the band's self-titled and (currently) self-distributed debut (the CD was supposed to be released by Warner Bros. but that's a whole can of worms that I don't want to open).
