Mutonia – Radio EP

Mutonia – Radio EP
Self released – 2019
Rock, Stoner, Grunge, Alternative
Rated: ***

The crazy Charlie Tooth wrote about their 2015 release Wrath Of The Desert for the HiVe. And now the equally crazy Italian trio Mutonia is back with a new EP called Radio! Well, in fact, it was released on my birthday back in December 2019 and was accompanied by a wholesome single and video called Nervous Breakdown. The song paints a definite picture of what you can expect on the entire EP, yet does not completely do it justice. For the three have a knack for distilling pop sensible tracks out of grungy stoner and alternative rock. There’s a ramshackle yet electrified or perhaps even high-tech approach to the stoner that became huge around early 2000’s. Yes, a QOTSA vibe is present on many of the tracks, but they also move more towards proper grunge during certain moments or seem to pay homage to their fellow countrymen Bud Spencer Blues Explosion on others. And all that on only five tracks. Five tracks filled with good wholesome rock fun and energetic grunge! Play it loud and drive fast!
