Mugstar debuted with
Mugstar (2006), a mediocre imitation of so many
space-rock albums of the last 35 years. The two subsequent (all-instrumental)
a general dearth of original ideas, but each contained a stunning tribute to
the classics of acid-rock.
The 14-minute Furklausundbo on Sun Broken (Important, 2010)
is basically a protracted garage-rock rave-up with hints of surf music.
The 13-minute Serra on Lime (Important, 2010 - Agitated, 2011) combines
cosmic music, free-jazz, minimalist repetition,
Suicide's electrical neurosis
motorik hypnosis and eventually secretes an
organ melody that could be from an old synth-pop hit.
The eleven-minute Radar King boasts three
minutes of intriguing guitar counterpoint but followed by very little, whereas
the shorter Sunburnt Impedience Machine packs
shamanic invocations and roaring crescendos (a` la early
in a much more effective manner.
They also composed a film soundtrack, Ad Marginem (Agitated, 2012),
which is one of their most conceptual works, bordering on post-rock.
Axis (Agitated, 2012) contains seven shorter songs, notably the
Axis Modulator, a sort of hybrid of Terry Rileyian minimalism,
Neu's motorik rhythm and tribal African dance.
A close second is
the more "romantic" Tangerina, that actually hints at a melody
amid all the propulsive mania.
The psychotic crescendo of Black Fountain exudes
Centralia (Agitated, 2013) was recorded live.
