Final Mumblr Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Philly quartet Mumblr appears to have released its swan song, Genie. The band continues to create a diverse, intriguing sound. Expressing vulnerability and volatility, these songs engage with their melodic yet menacing/fragile/frenetic/funky tones. Casual, observational lyricism makes quick, gravitational shifts, instilling urgency. Ranging from calm to crushing, there’s a poetic, unabashed strength that leaves a lasting impression. Thanks for being original and kicking ass, fellas!

New Music Video: "Game Show" - Mumblr

In advance of their forthcoming album Genie, due out on April 1, Mumblr recently shared a video for their new single “Game Show”.  Transported to the sets of some classic TV shows, the song delicately opens up lyrically, with its protagonist's apprehension over answering. Exploring the idea of missed opportunities and the domino effect/vicious cycle of depression, the song works to keep its cool before some much-appreciated rock ensues. Unfortunately, it sounds like this next album might be the end of the road for the Philly quartet, who shared this message along with the video.

It has been a fun ride sharing good and better and best times with beautiful people across this North American continent.

A most sincere thank you to all the folks who have helped us over the years, whether it was a place to play, or a place to stay, or a shoulder to lean on, or spending time being open with each other about emotions in these years of tumult over a meal. May the greater order and chaos of the universe shine upon you all. It's been fun!

Weekend Warrior, June 23 - 25

After a pressure cooker of a week, this weekend offers the opportunity to let out some steam, ease the tension, and let loose. This evening, Cheerleader heads the billing at Johnny Brenda’s. The quintet’s misty, refreshing melodies wash over you in a pleasantly cruising daydream. An inherent, rolling, rhythmic optimism sticks into the grooves, escaping the day-to-day grind. Tonight, they’ll be supported by Buffalo garage-rock trio Made Violent and the Brooks Brothers-led musical ensemble of Louds, whose bright, bubbling pop-rock naturally spills over on to the dance floor.

On Saturday at Johnny Brenda's, the quirky sing-along, carnival, musical troupe of OhBree brings out all the bells and whistles, celebrating their new record Burn Bridges, Burn Pies. Orchestrating their precision-oriented, multi-faceted soundscapes, Grandchildren helps in setting the musical scene, along with the engaging, energy-rich ebb & flow of Mumblr and the subdued pop of Glenn Matthews.

And whether you simply aren’t ready for the party to end or are an early riser ready for some Sunday day-drinking, get on over to The Barbary for the first annual Psychedelic Breakfast with psych-garage trio Residuels, local grindcore three-piece Die Choking, An Albatross, and much more. - Michael Colavita

New Music Video: "Microwave" - Mumblr

A continuous, close-following camera shot is centered on a convenience store with a relaying focus. The newly revealed video for “Microwave” by Mumblr is a work of simple precision. Directed by Sean Devin, the footage captures a casual sense of interconnectivity. You can catch them at Ortlieb's on Sunday, February 19 as part of an ACLU benefit that also includes Straw Hats and Pine Barons.

Mumblr recently returned from an extensive journey around the U.S. that they dubbed the Family Fun Tour.

The Philly quartet will be donating all proceeds from the seventeen-song album to Planned Parenthood so be as generous as you can and grab your copy below. Mumblr is scheduled to perform next in Philly on Thursday, January 26 at Johnny Brenda’s, but you never know if the guys will pop up for a performance somewhere around town before then so keep a lookout.
