Ah, nostalgia – here she comes. Allow me to present a personal favorite of mine:
MuteMath – Blood Pressure
Mutemath is one of those bands I admire for their unique sound. I have yet to find a group today whose musical prowess can replicate the feel that is Mutemath. My first encounter with this funky group was back when they released this single, Blood Pressure, in 2011. I had just joined a music discussion titled ‘Music Mondays’ in which users posted the tunes that were rocking’ their ears the past week. This came up, and half an hour later I was blasting it on full volume through the mess I call a room.
The band hails from New Orleans and was formed by longtime friends Paul Meany, Darren King, Greg Hill and Roy Mitchell-Cárdenas in 2003. After releasing their first EP the following year, they then went on to release several more albums, with their 2007 single ‘Typical” being eventually nominated for a Grammy.
Blood Pressure is, as an Amazon reviewer puts it, a classic rock song tinged with the blues of the 70’s. Couldn’t have put it better myself.
The song is the third track of their 2011 album Odd Soul.
