MUNA

Recommended Posts

MUNA are a Dark Pop trio from L.A. These girls are my favourite new band, right now.

 

All three members, Katie Gavin, Josette Maskin, and Naomi McPherson, identify as queer, and they've decided to keep gender-based pronouns out of their music, so that anyone might relate to these songs. The band formed when the two guitarists, Maskin and McPherson, met at a party, and bonded over their mutual love for Ska and Progressive Rock. It's funny to think they ended up sounding like this.

 

Their debut album, About U, dropped back in February, and it's been on steady rotation since.

 

Anyway, I cannot believe that I'll be the only one here that loves this.

Some nice tunes amongst the ones you posted. Kind of reminiscent of an '80's alternative band. It isn't something I'd purchase on cd for myself, but I could see throwing it in the mix while streaming music, when I'm in the mood for something different

Well, gotta admit I came into the thread and pre-decided I hated them based on Karpetass' write-up. But I'll be cursed if I don't actually really like that. There's something rather irritating about the lead singer's voice (and appearance) but it's not enough to take away from how good the tunes are. I'll try to check this out further.

Yeah, I really don't understand lesbian hairstyles. ;}

It's a real issue for me, and something I think I've covered in other threads before. If you want to devour vagina... go for it. Who doesn't? Get on board and lap those flaps up. BUT. Why do you have to be the most unbelievably ugly version of yourself in order to eat the vagina? I can't express how much I hate these people (95% of the time it is lesbians) who seem to go out of their way to look so amazingly ugly... the absolute ugliest version of what they could possibly be... just to show the world they're a lesbian?

 

It's all like, oh wow, you're so unique and individual and lesbian. You're one of a kind, man. Except... oh look, every one of you fucking idiots is the same... trying to look so ugly you surely become unfuckable, to both males and females? Surely.

 

Anyway... rant aside, I do really like these tunes and will pursue.

Speaking of HAIM, their latest single is pretty good, too.

There are two types of lesbos. The ones who play the male roles and the ones who play the female roles. The ugly ones fit in the first category. They just want to look mannish, or at least un-feminine. Or just want to get their daddies mad.

Picked this up off Geoff's 2017 faves. I don't put none HH stuff in my list and maybe should start. 

 

Great album. Love it. 

 

I think it's the first time I've heard the word eviscerated in a song, as well.

Got 'Everything' on repeat this evening. Wonderful wonderful song. 

Probably my favourite lyrics on the whole album. No, definitely. Brilliant, brilliant stuff. And a magnificently haunting, beautiful song too. One of my faves for sure. I wish every song could have lyrics this potent.

So it's been discussed elsewhere on the forum, but their new album 'Saves The World' dropped a few days ago and slap my balls if I don't already love it. 

It wasn't quite as instant as the debut for me, and probably realistically isn't quite that good, but it didn't take long for me to crave it's place in my tape deck. Spun it about half a dozen times in three days. Love it already. 

A few of my favourite tunes;

 

 

 

 

 

I wonder if the last one is a biography of sorts. 

Anyway, this band is ridiculously good at writing super catchy, interesting and magnetic tunes. It's been a while since I've enjoyed a band on a lyrical level as much as I do Muna. Brilliant.

Yes, not only is their debut About U instant but also the better of the two. I loved all songs on the first album. This new one probably has one two tracks that I don't like. And also their best songs on their first album is better than the best ones on the new one. Songs like Loudspeaker and Winter break are  10/10. Still this new one is fantastic and by no means way off from their debut. Imo they are the best pop group at the moment.

Downloading now. Hadn't spotted it had dropped. 

Edit: That voice. So much emotion. Very impressive first listen.

Yep, it's what gets me every time. Nothing more appealing than someone who just puts their complete self into their output.

    • How To Talk To Girls At Parties ~ Wow, where'd this 2016 movie come from? Really good film and not in any way shape or form associated with the title which has no relevance to the film. Super eclectic but not in that Portland trying to be weird way by screaming it in peoples faces that your weird to try and convince everyone even though your not. Period 70's movie centering around some punk rockers that stumble upon a "party" but everyone there are aliens, unbeknownst to the 3 boys. Crazy ensues there after with a very cool sappy ending. Well worthy a watch imho.
    • Exactly what I have been thinking too haha. I love the Marcello/Vestry album more than TMF and The Defiants' debut albums. Personally I find it even better than most DD albums. It's one of my fave melodic rock albums of all time. 
    • Ha! I actually made some comments in that thread. Completely forgot about it.

    • 4 tracks from the debut 7 from Freedom Rock 4 from Address The Nation 5 from TDTW 6 from ITGU plus Drink Alone
    • Sounds very U2 to me, which I don't mind
    • I would appreciate if you guys could answer the following question : Has anyone heard the GUIRO (if you don't know what it is please google it) in "Love Is The Killer"? And does it bother you? I just noticed it while listening to the album with headphones. They already used a guiro on the debut ("Waiting On A Heartbreak") which I thought was strange at first but it's only during the chorus and I've since gotten used to it. But this time they really went overboard with it it's so irritating. You can hear it throughout the entire verses and the solo...  Edit: it's also on U X'd my heart, although a bit more subtle. What's the fascination with this (sorry to say) useless instrument? The only thing it does is ruin a perfectly good song
    • Nice song but not completely blown away by it. Out of the first singles/videos they have released so far for each album except Artwork, this new one is my least favourite. Hope the rest are all gems.
