The Leeds-based art-rock trio, Mush, are set to release their
feverish second LP, Lines Redacted via Memphis Industries
on 12 February 2021. The new release, which finds the group
recruiting Lee Smith (The Cribs, Pulled Apart By Horses) on
mixing duties, arrives just under a year after their debut LP,
3D Routine, capping off what has been an obviously
tumultuous, but remarkably prolific year for the band. With any
prospect of live shows decimated, the group, led by
songwriter, Dan Hyndman, has found the time to release two
EPs (‘Great Artisanal Formats’ and ‘Yellow Sticker Hour’) and
now a duo of full-length albums.

Tipped previously by the likes of BBC 6 Music, Loud & Quiet,
Uncut, Q, Stereogum, DIY, The Line of Best Fit, Dork and
more, Mush, comprised of Hyndman (guitar/vox), Nick Grant
(bass/vox) and Phil Porter (drums), present their own sonic
idiosyncrasy. It’s a sound that blurs the lines of abstract
surrealism, existentialism and social commentary; utilising
guitars as tools in 2020 to stave off malaise whilst
simultaneously commenting on the nation’s ability to fall into
such dire straits. It’s a sensory overload of wiry tones that zigzag
between punk, prog and sardonic-funk with a relentless
ability to reflect society’s faults and apathy in a unique and
acerbic manner.

Whereas the band’s debut was very much a product of its
time, something part-inspired by the political atmosphere of
mid-2019 and a genuine moment of optimism when the
prospect of a socialist government in the UK was on the cards,
this new record uses tongue-in-cheek cynicism as a coping
mechanism for the environment that we now find ourselves in.
From one song to the next, Lines Redacted introduces a string
of different narrators with each providing a different reflection
on the Armageddon scenario that we are slowly entering,
whether that’s bemoaning it or gleefully willing it along. 3D
Routine presented a bed of scathing political jibes latching
onto themes and decisions of the time. Lines Redacted
mutates these ideas into something slightly more sinister
whilst maintaining all of Hyndman’s razor-sharp wit that
permeates the album. and Rami Jaffee.r up!
