It’s been a while since we heard any childish yelping from Icelandic (via Neverland) band múm, who released their last album, Sing Along To Songs You Don’t Know, back in 2009. While a new album hasn’t been announced quite yet, the band are set to release a compilation of early tracks later this year. On 17th July, múm will release Early Birds on Morr Music, which collects fifteen tracks from the band’s earlier days, recorded during 1998 and 2000. The tracklisting follows, and some múm fanatics might recognize the tracks, as they appeared on fan-made compilation Friends of the Random Summer (which is actually still available, complete with print-it-yourself artwork).

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
