downy – mudai live

downy have released four albums all with the same name only differentiated by the release number. mudai live is a live version of some of their tracks. The album is a strange listen because the music is technical with a garage rock tone to many of the tracks,

Some songs feature some lyrics, but many of them are just instrumentations. The live aspect of the album really shows that the band is comfortable in their sound, and their abilities. While a lot of the live band playing sounds like there is a lot of improvisation, the songs all feel tightly knit together.

Even though the album was released in 2005, it has a timeless tone to it, I would recommend the live first to their albums because there is a lot more personality in the live playing.
