On their second proper release, Michigan’s Singing Lungs continue to channel their love for the nineties while having a great time in the process. Featuring the drummer from Cheap Girls, a board game designer and a zoo keeper, this immediately sounds like a band you want to like. And like them you will after having heard the five songs that make up ‘Mutter’.

Opener ‘I Don’t Remember Much’ packs plenty of punch while managing to sound warm and inviting at the same time. And once they have you hooked, these guys refuse to let you go. But that’s okay, you’ll want to stay anyway for the big, driving rhythms, solid guitar crunch and memorable melodies. All of the songs on here will please fans of Lagwagon and the Lemonheads alike and warrant a good time, but ‘Leave The Lights On’ is my personal favorite. It sounds downright massive and comes with the kind of break that Bob Mould would be proud of.

  1. I Don't Remember Much
