'early birds' is a compilation of 15 tracks, all of them recorded between 1998-2000 and long-lost or extremely rare, taken from demo tapes or limited edition vinyl releases. mum had a trademark even back in the earliest days: their compositions were all about melodies. yet, that's about the only thing these 15 songs have in common. especially the first half of the compilation focuses more on the playful, 'full of beans'-type of experimental tracks: pastiche and experimentation are key, and it;s anything goes indeed: they go from hyped-up pre-electronica sound to jazzy drum and bass.
