Monument
by Mutemath

 

One of my top five alt outfits in the industry today, Mutemath, just put out a new jam called "Monument". The song follows the band's tendency toward a more poppy sound, which personally I could do without, but it's still great music. The band is doing it right - they're musicians' musicians who live and play for their army of diehard fans and huge electric shows, rather than pumping out rehashed commercial music that might open the door to a broader but less dialed in audience. Here's the brand new track "Monument". Enjoy.
