“Two years after the release of their last album, eccentric pop maestros múm return with their fifth album proper, simply named Sing Along To Songs You Don’t Know. A flickering candle of an album, the album is more laid back than múm’s recent outings, this time much of the songs revolve around a lightly prepared piano, hammered dulcimer, a string quartet, marimbas, guitars, ukuleles and in the background of a few of the songs one can hear Örvar’s parent’s parakeet singing with the piano. The album was recorded in countless different places in four different countries, although most of it was done in múm’s native Iceland.” – Morr
