dgolcher A new fan from Costa Rica, amazing music! River woman still awes me every single time I listen to it Favorite track: River Women.

Lost Tribe Sound One of the most unique voices in music out there. The composure of Puzzle's music is of the highest caliber. Plus, the insane production value of the album (thanks to Greenhouse Studios) along with Muteson's unorthodox palette of instruments leads to a far greater experience than your average singer/songwriter album! Favorite track: River Women.

Theatrics picks up where Puzzle Muteson’s debut, En Garde (2011,
Bedroom Community), left off; the eleven tracks telling an intriguing story with every minute that passes; his talent for heartwrenching melodies and melancholic lyrics shining through like never before.

Where En Garde introduced dream-like strings, Theatrics intertwines
melody with mechanism; the album is as much a folk song fairytale as it is an exploration of electronic wonders.

Some songs have just been born, some have slowly but surely reached
their peak through years of delicate edits. And then there is the unique
take on New Order’s classic 1987 song „True Faith“, where Puzzle
Muteson breathes new life into this 1987 gem, undeniably making it
his own with his trembling voice.

Theatrics features a many musicians at the height of their craft, including labelmates Nico Muhly and Valgeir Sigurðsson, the latter of which co-produced the album with Boe Weaver.
