Mr. and Mrs. Muffins “The Raindrop Dance & Other Songs About Love”

September 11, 2011

Low-key stuff with a lot of accordion but not in the Weird Al way. Maybe this is stuff you play at cocktail parties. It’s not particularly jazzy, but it heads in that direction at times. Very innocuous in every way possible.
Some tracks are instrumentals, but “The Ladybird’s Theme” has maracas but not in a bossa nova way. Good music for when you have bubbly-gum in the old push-broom. All the tracks, by the way, start with “The.” There are no The The covers, however.
It’s hard not to say this band sounds like Corpus Callosum, but just because someone has an accordion doesn’t make it so. Well, I’m making the comparison anyway. Too bad.
“The Painter” has some chanting and harmonizing. It’s very pretty and has a Japanese air to it, like those Arling and Cameron songs when there’s no synths and they just fart around.
