Electronic pop fruitcakes múm return with a new single,
before coming up with a whole new album later in 2013. The A-side
"Toothwheels" starts off with echoes of their millenium-era rhythms,
which morph into shadows (reminiscent of their foggy masterpiece 'Summer
Make Good'). Flourishing strings and teeming arpeggios elevate the
track, that spins along in a cyclical motion before it is being washed
away in a tide of abstraction. The lulling vocals disguise the songs
fatalistic lyrics, evoking an eerie sense of immateriality. B-side's
tune "Cranes Like Ships" is again built around booming electronic beats
and confused synthesizers, but it's a much happier affair.

1998 ISAN recorded 'Beautronics'. Long before the term Electronica popped up, ISAN worked in the Interface of Ambient and IDM. Everyone familar to their compilation of early tracks ('Clockwork Menagerie') probably knows about the early ISAN magic. Now 'Beautronics' gets a re-release, which we think is overdue! For the first time ever there will be a pressing on Vinyl. And that Vinyl (that comes with new Artwork, gatefold cover & free mp3 inside) will see its first appearance tomorrow – within Record Store Day (this saturday)!
