John Mutter Was Raised by Wolves Launches Serialized Collection of Songs

BY Alex HudsonPublished Mar 20, 2014

Vancouver experimental pop artist John Mutter has worked with various acts like We Just Stole a Car, ffffftttt!!!! and Dixie's Death Pool, and now he's got a new project called John Mutter Was Raised by Wolves. The project's debut collection will be released over the course of the year.

According to a press release, the project offers "minimalist 'destroyed' pop songs that take sonic cues from a vast mix of material, including Radiohead, the Strokes, Bob Dylan, Beyoncé, Shabazz Palaces and Public Enemy."

Rather than release the songs as a traditional album, the plan is to unveil each song as a stand-alone video. First up is "Up the Hill We Come," a melodic, arpeggiator-driven electronic pop number with a simple video by Mutter himself. The hypnotically catchy track was produced by Jon Siddall and Sprïng vocalist Joseph Hirabayashi.

As new songs from the project are unveiled, they will be posted on Bandcamp. But for now, check out "Up the Hill We Come" below.
