It’s been ages – but slowly the wheels of time grind and churn out bits of music that we find interesting. The New Mummies have become international and are happy to present a cross-pollination of USA, Sweden and UK – ‘A Reduction in Fact’ is here!
A new update, he is still active, but things are a bit mixed up and slow, but several new items for listening.
First, the ‘lost’ first album from 1999-2001 era is partly found. You can listen here:
Additionally, several months ago several small EPs were released each with a different focus, pop, noise & cover songs. You can find Covers of the covers of the…, Stop the Clocks, and the Noisy one on bandcamp:
Due to laziness, updates have been going out on the bandcamp pages but not on the blog with several things not getting their proper updates here. First, this is a bit dated but back in the summer of 2014 the New Mummies released a new album ‘Gnis Gnos’. You can listen and download here!
The album was recorded in San Francisco and consists of recordings from live rehearsals directly recorded onto a tablet. The recording quality is lo-fi and plans were never carried out to record proper. This is the first album to feature a new New Mummie, as the duo became a trio, with EM providing drums (and sometimes bass or guitar) on most songs.
Additionally, in the attempt to get to play an international indiepop & rock festival the New Mummies made a compilation trying to dial down their spacerock tendencies. While the gig never occurred, ‘The New Mummies Know Best’ works as a fine introduction into the poppier side of the band!
New updates for The New Mummies & Dire Bruce!
First, the New Mummies are back and playing live with their first show since moving to San Francisco (Hotel Utah March 12 @ 8pm). In celebration of the Rise of The New Mummies, we’ve posted an oldie covering random stuff between 2001-2006: The Vault Sessions EP. There are new unrecorded songs in the works that will be in the live shows, so check back later for more info.
Second, Dire Bruce sent us a 2-song single made way back in 2010 that never ended up getting put up earlier for some reason… Check out the Stars+Sounds single.
Things have changed and this EP had been elsewhere, but this was the demo passed around in 2009-10 when the CGs tried to get gigs in Austin in their new formation, when they couldn’t settle on who they really were as hidden objects.
In the interim between the New Mummies and Clinical Girls, Dire Bruce has been scraping the back catalog as well as tying together some new songs. A bit different from the other projects, being more sample and electronic based. Download or stream his 2 singles here.
Hey folks, after several years of playing around Austin, TX, Clinical Girls actually released a post-humous album! Download and stream at bandcamp and tell all yr friends!
