Múm To Explode Frogs In September

A few days ago, everyone’s favorite Icelandic septet announced their plans to release their first LP in three years. From FatCat Records:

It’s been over 3 years since the release of múm’s last album Summer make good, and a lot of water has passed under the bridge. And now finally, a string of dates over the Summer, heralding a long-awaited new album, strangely titled go go smear the poison ivy, due out 24th September 2007. A colourful, twitching, playful work of art, full of life affirming energy, the album will be preceded by the single they made frogs smoke ’til they exploded on 27th August. A chirpy song about animal cruelty, it’s backed with ‘the amateur show’, described by the band as a wonky insect-circus instrumental.

Múm are always interesting, to say the least, so I’ll be interested to hear how this turns out. In the meantime, enjoy the LP’s title track, recorded during the Hlaupanotan Session.

Múm – go go smear the poison ivy, let your crooked hands be holy.mp3
