Mutiny Mutiny

Previous praise for Mutiny Mutiny:

“The early ’00s may not seem all that long ago—but a full decade has passed since brainy, passionate, post-millennial post-hardcore bands like Q And Not U, Minus The Bear, and Pretty Girls Make Graves made their marks. Mutiny Mutiny remembers. While not a throwback, the Seattle outfit’s new album Don’t Quit Your Day Job harnesses that intricate sound, thanks largely to the brooding, bursting-with-melody vocals of bassist Jenn Schmidt and guitarist Jason Dean. On songs like “Entitlement” and “Prime Numbers,” the group snaps into a catchy, gently abrasive groove that doesn’t evoke the recent past as much as evolve it.”
—Jason Heller, The AV Club

“When it seems that the world around you has turned to shit, there are two things you can do: get sad or get pissed off. Mutiny Mutiny has chosen the latter. It’s a classic punk-rock move, turning unmitigated frustration into fierce, primal music—accepting angst as your muse. Not all punk rock is equal, however. For every Sonic Youth-, Flipper-, or Buzzcocks-type group are a thousand other bands bashing away creating hollow, eviscerating noise, channeling the angst yet losing sight of the musicality. Thankfully, Mutiny Mutiny’s latest offers a sonic experience that measures up to its message.”
—Corbin Reiff, Seattle Weekly

Mutiny Mutiny is noisy art rock from Seattle featuring ex members of Petals Like Bricks and Chinchilla. ‘Undefined’ is the first release from MM’s founders Jenn Schmidt (vocals, bass) and Jason Dean (vocals, guitar) with Julie D. (guitar, vocals).

About “Loukanikos” from Jason Dean of Mutiny Mutiny:

“While we were in the process of writing the song that would eventually bear his name, news outlets were running stories about the recent passing of Loukanikos, one of the Greek ‘riot dogs,’ that participated in the Athens anti-austerity protests of 2010 and 2012.   

“The passion for politics in Greece is strong and we have an interest in and affinity for its political and economic situation after traveling around the country in 2012. On the idyllic island of Crete you will see tucked-away spaces painted black and red with political slogans written in Greek on their entryways and interior walls; posters advertising lectures and tables with free anarchist, socialist and leftist literature in the narrow medieval streets and alleyways of Rethymno. The feeling of tension in the Athens air at the time was palpable as you walked through Syntagma square, the epicenter of Greek politics, or the streets of the Exarcheia neighborhood where many anarchists lived and saw lines of police in full riot gear lined up and waiting for the next demonstration to occur.

“Being reminded of the protests with the death of Loukanikos we asked ourselves why we don’t see the same kind of intense public actions in America like those staged in places like Greece or throughout the Mideast during 2010’s Arab Spring.  Since the writing of this song we have seen the power of unrest unleashed on the streets of Ferguson but before then even the widespread Occupy movements were tame and passive compared to what was happening in other parts of the world. The lyrics for Loukanikos explore the idea that our outrage is tempered by the easy distractions of consumer culture, junk entertainment, and the compulsion of mindless internet clicking, scrolling and browsing. 

“Are we advocating anything? Sure. It’s simple. Lift your gaze from your screens and devices and take in your surroundings. Clear your mind and follow the threads of your thoughts. Daydream. The rest can come later. This song is for riot dogs everywhere.”

 

“Loukanikos” – lyrics

 

A brand/The good life/Bottled and sold/Stock merchandise

 

The cities are safe (not for long)/The cities are sound (turning tides)

Secure in our complacency (surface and breathe)

 

Attrition/The sparks will fly/The ratchet’s up/Rebate expired

 

The buildings stand (cracks expand)/At rest, at ease (multiply)

Defiant and calm sentinels (the iron is hot)

 

Are we getting what we paid for?/An opiate haze/

Looking for the next score

 

Are we getting what we paid for?/Don’t break a window

Walk right through the front door

 

Hand in hand/The push and pull/We’re cashing in/Shuttered and closed

 

The cities are safe (not for long)/The cities are sound (turning tides)

Secure in our complacency (surface and breathe)

 

Are we getting what we paid for?/An opiate haze

Looking for the next score

 

Are we getting what we paid for?/Don’t break a window

Walk right through the front door

 

Stop counting backwards/Don’t go under/Mesmerized

Being hypnotized/Time to shake the spell
