Mute Math’s second full-length album, Armistice, sees them restrain the wide-ranging genre influences and aim towards a slightly more mainstream alternative rock sound. However, I think, that is a change that most bands have to go through if they want to succeed to any great degree. That said the album is still a heady concoction of electronic breakbeats, processed spiralling riffs, haunting piano, sci-fi strings and a kaleidoscope of other musical noises.
