Mugimania

I was just listening to my second favourite Icelandic experimentalist Mugison‘s records on Friday, and it turns out he’s just about to release another one. Here’s what he’s got to say about the recording process (from Paste)…

“There was to be no time reference, no time frame,” Mugison says in a statement about the album. “The lyrics had to be straight to the point and all the songs played with eyes closed and always in a state of emergency. I had to ensure that all pretentiousness was deleted from the songs. All nearly’s, all maybe´s. Every song had to sound like it was the last song I’d play if the world was going down.”

Sounds like it’ll be exhausting, then.
