Mux Mool: “Skulltaste” + CD Giveaway

Posted by Jakub


If you visit the site a ton you might see me post a good amount on Mux Mool because he donates his sweet production to us here at ISO50 and has done some amazing covers, remixes, given away a FREE EP, and even an edit of Carl Sagan. Today his first LP drops called Skulltaste:

Skulltaste is an old-fashioned epic, and its diversity—both track-to-track and within the songs themselves—is hard to measure. Lindgren’s taste roams all over the map, but it’s this attention-deficient approach that makes Skulltaste such a smorgasbord of an album, tempting the listener with one tidbit after another. Opener “The Ballad of Gloria Featherbottom” hits a quintessential balance between giddily spiraling samples cooled by monstrous slabs of ice-water synth; later, “Get Better John” has a teary-eyed uplift, conjuring a mood somewhere between ‘90s R&B and the Chrono Trigger soundtrack; and the entertainingly titled “SFW Porn” pairs a boom-clap beat to clear-blue keys and a lazily scribbled guitar line. On Skulltaste, Mux Mool tirelessly doles out 20 tracks in 80 minutes, with not a moment of filler.

THE GIVEAWAY PART: Since the CD version isn’t going to hit the stores until next week and I have a few copies here we’d like to giveaway the Skulltaste CD(I know CD’s right? so old fashioned) to 3 people on the blog. All you have to do is post 3 songs in the comment section that you like from the Skulltaste LP and we’ll randomly pick the winners, here’s a link to the LP, i’ll announce the winners in Wednesday’s music post, good luck.

Mux Mool – “Skulltaste” CD Winners:
Chad, Erika, Spencer (I have emailed you guys)
Thanks to everyone that played! i’ll line up another free giveaway very soon, hopefully its something we will do frequently on ISO50.

Death 9000, Skulltaste, and Crackers are all great stuff, along with the rest of the album. Hope to win, and if not I’ll be sure to grab this up when it’s out.

Hog Knuckles (Freestyle underwater synth goodness)
Skulltaste (Gangsta stompin romp)
Death 9000 (Hard to beat. Some UFC fighter has to use as their entrance track:)

Thanks for keying me in to MM. So fresh that someone new can bridge the chasm from electronic to hip-hop, and do it so well. Was great to hear the remix of Death 9000 with Prof & P.O.S. on flows.

doesn’t ‘Get Better John’ sound like a Mega Man Level soundtrack? The beginning sounds like Boss music….so awesome.
