Kazoos! Whistling! Gospel on death row! Pirates! Parents! X-ray vision! Punk rock! Rapping! Angst! Love!
Mysteriam surprises again with this collection of “song entertainments” that are made for getting your jam on and rocking the heck out. As usual, you may think “I don’t get it, but I like it!” But this album is certainly the most pop/rock kind of Mysteriam that you can buy, and you should.
A Choir of Spirited Distraction illuminates the world of the 21st century, the almost-stifling freedoms, our delighted slavery to consumption, the wonders and tragedies of the technology age sung in effervescent visions. This is the second release from Mysteriam founder Corbett Lunsford, a graduate of Berklee College of Music who applies the magical turn-of-hand of popular songwriting toward an inventive fusion of organic sound and electronic processes.
