I could never properly get into MUTEMATH. It was one of those things where, if I heard them, I wouldn't mind and I'd enjoy it, but I always felt like they were never coherent enough. They know how to play their instruments very well, but I'm not sure if they know how to write a good song.
Only listened to Odd Soul and Armistice, though. Am I doing something wrong?
Yes. Listen to the self-titled. It still blows my mind. All of them are absolutely incredible musicians. If you have a chance, see them live, too. The BEST live show I've ever been to.
That said, I don't think Odd Soul hit very hard. I like it, but it didn't do as well reception-wise as Armistice did. I would absolutely love to hear them go back to some more atmospheric stuff. I do honestly think they have it in them to make a KILLER record, but who knows, they may just want to keep up the funk/soul jams.
