The sixth album of Múm is now released on Morr Music.
Glorious glitch & experimental pop surrounded by twisted synths and dynamic instrumentation. The beautiful arrangement of the vocals and its lyrics make the album a candy paradise for the ears.
Stream on Pitchfork (features some nice visuals):

Smilewound press quotes ::
“Smilewound finds the woolly jumpered collective casting through another set of impressionistic glitch-pop and clockwork exotica.!
“Toothwheels” is masterful, all languid viola and brooding beats that could easily take a serious R&B vocal.”
Loud & Quiet U.K.
“Even when things begin to get hot and bothered the mood is curbed by an unhurried gentleness”
“Múm’s combination of live instrumentation, ethereal harmonies and digital fixings has birthed another cracker”
The Skinny U.K
“Seen in the wider context of their career as a whole, the album may be viewed as an oddity, but a sparse approach works wonders; it’ll be interesting to see where they go from here”
The 405 U.K
” With Smilewound MÚM created an album that is perfect pop music. Stripped down, dreamy and in fancy clothes.”
