Mux Mool makes beats and makes out (VIDEO)
Having decamped from Minneapolis to Brooklyn about two years ago, Mux Mool has been working near-constant since, touring and writing and remixing and partying in advance of what may could be a big year for Mr. Lindgren. He's been shouted out as "New Band of the Day" by The Guardian and is receiving myriad huzzahs for his first full-length Skulltaste, released in April by one of the most-respected most-extant current electronic labels, Ghostly International.
He makes his music with a computer, sure, but the past few years of development under that umbrella have yielded electronical artists putting out work as organic-feeling and breathy as any corporeal band. It's been a long goddamn time since Crystal Method and Oakenfold ruled the night -- peruse the Moodgadget site and prove it (or actually don't right now, it's being rebuilt).
Here is a video that's part short interview, part time-lapse drawing study, and part slightly booby live footage from Mux Mool's recent performance at The Loft in Barfly, shot by MPLS.TV collaborator Dan Huiting. "DJ Giant Wiener," huh?
