TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 9 September 2013
'Smilewound' (loving the title!) finds Icelandic ensemble Mum at the very top of
their game on this their sixth album. The innately strange and magical qualities
which have defined much of their best work are gloriously present and correct.

There is an irresistible bustling energy and freshness about these eleven
compositions which makes one feel good about being alive! I defy you not
to get all twitchy and jiggedy-with-it to the fiercely addictive 'When Girls
Collide' and the insanely angular pagan-android-insect-kasbah-dance of 'One
Smile'! Then there's the totally surreal (and wonderful!) collaboration with
Kylie (yup as-in Minogue!) on the final track 'Whistle (with Kylie)'. Sublime!

There are tender moments too. 'Slow Down' is a meltingly beautiful invention
like moonlight glinting on a mountain lake and the haunting 'Time To Scream
and Shout' might well have slipped unseen into our world from another dimension.

'Sweet Impressions', with its faltering rhythms, scintillating vocal harmonies
and squelchy Mariachi brass is, however, my current favorite but there's every
probability that this will change on a daily basis for the next six months or so!

There's so much going on here it made me dizzy and it's a good kind of dizzy!

Quite Extraordinary.
