Third album from the prolific Leeds art-rock group. 2022's 'Down Tools' sees Mush getting loose, moving away from the defined moods and textures of 2021's 'Lines Redacted' with a musical openness, straddling genres while avoiding pastiche. Vocalist and guitarist Dan Hyndman says of the lyrics on 'Down Tools' that 'there was a conscious decision to retreat further from an observational approach' with vocals being ad-libbed lending the record a more abstract feel. Hyndman continues: 'this album is less dark than the previous one. The Armageddon obsession has eased, or at least the symptoms have become milder due to saturation. Musically there's a lot more chill on the record-there's a few more mellow tracks out there and the most astute listener may even be able to decipher some of the words, fingers crossed'.
