Reimagined Pyramids

Clever, edgy new release from Mythical Motors Mythical Motors is at it again. The boys in the band have been busy producing a new album as well as playing a slew of gigs with the likes of Sir Army Suit and Thee FiNKS (choice pairings to say the least.)

Add to that the fact that the band’s own Matthew Addison is set to tie the proverbial knot in the upcoming weeks (congratulations on the pending nuptials) and one wonders where they found the time to write any new tunes at all, much less record them.

Yet somehow they found the time, and the result is 12 tracks collected under the title Reimagined Pyramid. This newest entry sports higher production values than earlier releases (to my ears, anyway) while still maintaining the edginess that is so key to their sound.

Too pretty for punk, too punk for pop, Mythical Motors once again captures the spirit of the best sounds of 1979 with overtones of Elvis Costello (lightly seasoned with a little Robyn Hitchcock, I think).

Clever music for smart people, Mythical Motors recaptures a sound that should never have been lost in the first place (damn you, ’80s pop tripe!).

Of course, it only sounds vintage to those of us who are, ourselves, vintage; to the kids it’s just going to be kick-ass rock and roll. To pick up your copy and to keep up with their upcoming gigs, hit the guys up through Facebook.

Listen Up: "Henry Blazes" by Mythical Motors

Chattanooga pop-rockers Mythical Motors create music that’s as indebted to bands aligned with the British Invasion of the ‘60s as it is to the post-punk landscape of the late ‘70s. Fitting sugary, hook-filled rhythms onto a framework of indie rock melodies, the band melds the past five decades of musical history without missing a beat.

But Mythical Motors isn't merely a highlight reel for the band's own personal musical preferences—it's a sublimation and reorganization of some of the best aspects of those specific decades. They're not so much showing off how much they know about these particular sounds, but rather they're allowing the listener to easily absorb a dozen or so influences in a single sitting.

On their latest song, "Henry Blazes," the band channels the aesthetic spirit of proto alt-pop staple Flying Nun Records and churns out a jangling, quick-paced guitar chugger that builds around some repeating fretwork, swelling and building into a deceptively simple rhythmic storm of pinched chords and lo-fi harmonies. The song has all the hallmarks of the best indie rock of the past couple of decades. From its '90s jangle pop roots to the late '80s New Zealand pop vibe that radiates from its concentric melodies, the band manages to capture the pop essence without watering down its influences.

"'Henry Blazes' is an attempt to write a multipart song suite in under three minutes," said singer/guitarist Matt Addison. "Stylistically, it is influenced by Guided By Voices, or more specifically, by Robert Pollard's [of GBV] solo albums. I chose it as the opener on our album 'The Elated Millions' because I thought it contained a good summary or introduction to the different styles and sounds of Mythical Motors."

Joshua Pickard - Nooga.com - 05.14.14

Having made my way through the TWENTY songs of their album The Elated Millions (I’m going to start buying all my music in bulk from now on) the Clash keeps coming to mind. They aren’t a Clash cover band nor are they particularly trying to emulate that iconic group, but there is a quality of the band that Mythical Motors has absolutely nailed. The fact is if you listen closely to Mythical Motors, you can pick out flavors of many of the great punk, post-punk, proto-punk, punk-lite and “I can’t Believe It’s Not Punk” bands, but not without a hint of pop too, akin to that one upbeat Elvis Costello song (and definitely early R.E.M.). Investigate for yourself; The Elated Millions covers a lot of territory.
