¡Mugatu!: Frill Rock

Posted by on Thu, Jan 17, 2013 at 10:20 AM

(Blue Moon) Real talk: I'm a sucker for a website that uses animated rollovers. After looking at a million Bandcamps expertly designed with hip triangles and faux-'60s-filtered photos, sometimes you just want a black background and some flashing neon doodles! Like their website, ¡Mugatu!'s songs also lack frills. Or maybe they're ALL FRILLS—frills attached to nothing but other frills. I can't decide. Their self-described "lo-fi hi-energy pseudo-psych cock-rock glam-punk" seems to be composed entirely of bridge (y'know, that place where extra hooks or breakdowns might go), as if the recordings all begin in the middle. Whoaas, yeaahhhs, nananas, and various yips/yelps are the only vocals, but it all sounds SO FUN. Frill rock. Get into it.
