Jukebox: Francepants (Mutemath and Ginger’s Revenge)

Barry and Abigail discuss Mutemath by Mutemath and sample Original and Cranberry Herb from Ginger’s Revenge in Asheville, North Carolina.

Frances and Barry met as Patreon subscribers of Stand Up! with Pete Dominick, and Frances has appeared on Pete’s show numerous times as part of his special segment “The Hue.” She has also appeared on her brother’s podcast Phrankly Speaking, most recently joining him for a two-part series about Tom Cruise.

Friend of the podcast Jon Carroll will be touring with Mary Chapin Carpenter this summer! You may be able to catch Barry and Abigail (and Frances) at the Charlotte show on August 11, 2023!

Frances discovered Mutemath at a college concert where they opened for Switchfoot. She purchased the Teleprompt version of the album at the concert. We reviewed the Warner Bros. version. Read about the differences between the two releases.

Ginger’s Revenge created a character for each of their four core beers. Meet the band and check out each of their customized Spotify playlists!

Abigail heard similarities between this album and Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto.

Frances compared the vocals in Collapse to Joga by Björk.

The “reverse back masked” music video for Typical reminded Frances of the creativity and artistry of OK Go’s music videos. You can hear more about backmasking in our episode Tripping Walruses (The Beatles & Tripping Animals Brewing Co.) or in the Omnibus entry dedicated to the topic.

Frances compared the syncopated drumming of Darren King, Mutemath’s drummer, to the drumming in Take Five (Take Another Five) by Grover Washington, Jr.

Abigail got U2 vibes from Plan B; Frances heard elements U2 in Control (she mentioned Elevation as a possible comparison). Barry contributed to his Abigail Hummel School of Speaking Smartly About Music thesis by comparing Control to Times Like These by Foo Fighters.

Stall Out reminded Frances of Ride by Bond.

Our next Jukebox episode will be Time to Pretend by MGMT, submitted by Paul Zawacki. This episode is scheduled to drop on July 21, 2023.

Up next… The World from the Side of the Moon by Phillip Phillips
