"Metempsycho" EP (SF009)

by Mugwump



Following the release of Mugwump’s acclaimed debut- album "Unspell" in its Deluxe Edition and with media plaudits from the likes of Groove, Clash, SPIN, The Fader, Mixmag (Germany + UK), Nowness, Metro, Uncut, Les Inrockuptibles, Tsugi plus a recent headlining guest appearance on BBC 6 Music, Mugwump returns with an assorted package of mind-blowing music and an improved band line-up (drums+vox : Lukas Melville / synths+vox+machines : Geoffroy Mugwump / bass+vox : Stephane Fedele / guitar : Thomas Stadnicki) which is heading towards a big blend of influences such as (Cult Belgian 80's band) TC Matic (covers coming-up soon !), early Talking Heads, The Stranglers, Johnny Marr, Air, Ought, Protomartyr or a darker LCD Soundystem. Mugwump keeps on joining the dots between daring dancecuts and live post-punk/krautey disco/coldwave/indierock with the Metempsycho EP, which serves as a vehicle and playground for the new formation, showcasing re-arrangements of 2 existing album songs ("Breakdown" & "Memento lies") and the new single, « At the Front ». Sung by Geoffroy Mugwump, "At The Front" is an eerie piece of post-punk indie pop, coming with a 10 minutes- long haunted dub version. The song signals an exciting direction for Mugwump’s second album, currently in the works. Radical club facelifts by Kill The DJ/Les Disques De La Mort's Ivan Smagghe/Rupert Cross, Fabrizio Mammarella (Slowmotion/International Feel) & recent Subfield signings Front De Cadeaux round- off this exciting package.
