Mungo Park (United)October 20, 2008
Another MySpace friend request that turned out to be pretty good-
Mungo Park (United) are listed as coming from Montreal, Paris, and errr Kansas City- not sure what type of sound Kansas City would have but it is the definitely the gallic-ness of their music that comes through thankfully. Came across them a while back and at the time they had all of the tracks in their player available for free downloads- not sure if this is still the case but they are well worth the listen.
They do love their colourful language as can be heard in Ankara F Club- a good tune with a nice beat but the singing is a bit undefined. Dreamers Blood Transfusion has some good beats as well and a mix of genres that will keep you guessing where the tune is going which is always a good thing. I have to say Miss Landingham Saved My President is one of my favourites though- closer to math rock with the syncopation and changes in rhythm even if the vocals don’t quite match up at all points of the tune. There is also a good cover of Sufjan Steven’s Chicago with some very good vocals.
Alas no YouTubes for the one clickers so check out their MySpace.
