“I know it’s electronic music,” Brian Lindgren says, “but sometimes I feel like an old-timey traveling musician with an M-Audio Trigger Finger instead of a guitar.” As Mux Mool, Lindgren has been criss-crossing the country by himself for years, collecting records, loops, and samples, and rocking parties in towns both large and boondock-small. Lindgren is a self-confessed nerd to the bone, an incurable doodler, a Star Trek: The Next Generation fan; he lives on energy drinks and barely sleeps, spending his days working on music and his nights absorbing Internet memes by the hard-drive load. Mux Mool’s homespun, thick spin on electronic based hip-hop is the product of an introverted mind, an extroverted imagination, and a bottomless cultural appetite. These skills will be on full display starting tomorrow night in Vancouver, when he joins Manchester’s Star Slinger for a sixteen date Fall Tour (full dates below). Mux Mool will also be playing New York during this year’s CMJ Festival as well.
Lindgren has been hard a work putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming album out in 2012 on Ghostly International, the follow-up to 2010’s Skulltaste. With praise coming from the likes of Pitchfork, NPR, Resident Advisor, Guardian UK and more, it’s safe to say that many are wondering where Lindgren will be taking things next.
