Museum Mouth is currently recording their follow-up album with Fake Problems‘ Derek Perry. Perry recently recorded You Blew It!’s debut LP, Grow Up, Dude, on Topshelf Records. Look for the new Museum Mouth record in early 2013.
In January 2012 indie punk band Museum Mouth released their sophomore album, Sexy But Not Happy. The album is available for streaming and free download on Bandcamp now. You can check out another video for the track “Blood Mountain” on Alternative Press.
While Museum Mouth’s 2010 debut, Tears In My Beer, screamed with youthful abandon, the band’s follow-up, Sexy But Not Happy, shows a group in the midst of growing up. Gone are the female vocals and the excitable naivety of youth. The growth is profound and evidenced by the increased musicianship and arrangements contained within Sexy But Not Happy. Drummer Karl Kuehn has taken over full vocal duties now having perfected his chops in the new-wavey side project, SWTHRT, earlier this year. And you can see the new wave tendencies of Kuehn’s SWTHRT project has colored Museum Mouth with a bit more personality. While Tears In My Beer was raw with excitable angst, Sexy But Not Happy practices a bit more mature contemplation. The band hasn’t abandoned those lo-fi sensibilities though, they have just honed their skills. The rawness has become warmth and Museum Mouth have become experts at their craft. Of course, Museum Mouth still knows how to rile up an indie pop/punk dance floor, just listen to the title track for proof of that. They just do so now with a bit more substance behind all the noise.
