Top Twenty of 2013. Number 16 – Múm – Smilewound

I was always interested in Múm – I think ‘Go Go Smear the Poison Ivy’ is an awesome, experimental and weird piece of music.  So, Smilewound is quite an odd one for me.  It’s not weird.  It’s not that experimental.  It features Kylie.  And it really is awesome.  Much more pop than I had expected it to be it really is a wonderful little nugget of how pop can still be exciting and fresh.  It;s packed with great beats, gorgeous vocals and lush sounds.  So I wasn’t expecting this record but it just took over my whole being from the first moment until the last.  And yes, Kylie is awesome on it – not that  you would know it’s Kylie such are the similarities in tone of her voice and Múm’s own vocals.
