The Mumlers at Echoplex – Show Review

San Jose-based psych/soul sextet, The Mumlers, played a kick-ass show this past Sunday at the Echoplex. Currently touring for their new album, “Don’t Throw Me Away,” the new release displays their multi-instrumental talent as well as their lyrical inventiveness. The Mumlers have absorbed 20th Century classic American music styles and morphed them into their own eerie, dreamlike sound, creating an aural landscape littered with funeral-style horns (equal parts New Orleans funeral horns and Southwestern flair a la Calexico), classic soul, ’60s garage psych, folk and a dash of Screaming Jay Hawkins.
