M∏m Yesterday Was Dramatic, Today is OK
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: Morr
Last year‘s Summer Make Good was the sound of a lighthouse being abandoned by its tender: creaking wood, climbing waves, flickering candles and empty pantries. It‘s a somber progression from 2002‘s twinkling Finally We Are No One, and Müm‘s experimental debut Yesterday outshines both. Released on Icelandic label Thule in 2000, Müm lost the rights to it until this year. The chamber lullabies they‘re known for evolved from Yesterday‘s tangle of clicks, like the gorgeously dense, nine-minute "Smell Memory." As Müm‘s current trajectory takes them further out to sea, Yesterday is a treasure chest of gems from that same locale.
