Classic debut Múm album, previously issued by Tugboat & Thule -- available again. Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today is OK was mostly recorded in a tiny, sweaty room in the summer of 1999 with carpenters banging nails around the band, but sometimes they put on headphones so they couldn't hear them. It was originally released on an Icelandic label called Thule, but early on a number of disputes came up, which ended up dragging on for many years. Part of the attraction of the album is its mixture of analog instruments such as harmonica, accordion and glockenspiel with digital clicks and cuts. But what makes it so beautiful is that at no point does this combination feel constructed or forced. While listening to Yesterday Was Dramatic - Today is OK, you don't care how it was made, you're just enjoying that it exists.
