The third album by Icelandic one-man-band Mugison has nothing in particular to do with the ethereal art rock of his compatriots Sigur Rós and Björk: Mugimama, Is This Monkey Music? is as oddball as its title, its . sounding songs interwoven with cut-and-paste electronic breaks, spoken word interludes, and homemade sound effects, like the frankly rather irritating. sound of water being poured that forms part of the rhythm track of "Birds
Songs like this can drive a man insane," sings Ornelius Mugison on "Sad As a Truck", a deliriously shredded piece of dada-pop that sits dead-center on Mugimama, Is This Monkey Music?

Complete your Mugison collection. Mugison's unique blend of indie folk and electronica comes to the fore on MUGIMAMA! Is this monkeymusic? "I Want You" has all the ache of a psychedelic ballad, whereas "The Chicken Song" take a more mysterious route with its piano chords and bizarre chicken-based lyrics. The acoustic, touching "2 Birds" takes a simpler route, as does the twangy "What I Would Say In Your Funeral.
Throughout Mugimama, Mugison sounds comfortable to keep his music at an arm’s reach. When ambition hits him, it comes reluctantly and at the wrong time – Swing Ding is simply one of the worst interludes possible to imagine, its deep rumbling voice unable to make any interplay with the tender tunes that surround it. Afi Minn just shows a sudden lack of commitment to his own challenging of his musical norm, a harmonica having to wait five minutes for the irritating noises of water and footsteps.
