Biography

"A very, very touching piece of music, just on the right side of melancholy" —Louis Philippe

"Dreamy soundscapes, unconventional harmonies and friendly surrealism, strange instrumental songs that don’t sound like anything else?—Perfect!" —Petter Herbertsson, Testbild!

Seattle-based storytellers, Mr. and Mrs. Muffins, offer up delicately arranged morsels that wrap the listener in a blanket of violin, classical guitar, melodica, glockenspiel and synth. The music here moves effortlessly from unsophisticated sounds (a toy piano picking out a melody) to full-blown romanticism, string ensembles and airy choral arrangements…and back, veering at times into eerie territory, but never losing its child-like sensitivity. Whistles bend, insects flutter and bubbles in water play out rhythms. Do not be alarmed to find the hairs on your arms standing on end.

Recommended by Louis Philippe, Remington Super 60, Mr. Wright, and Testbild!, this LP comprises the musical interludes from the Muffins' first two audio books and was compiled—by popular demand—for your uninterrupted musical pleasure.
