Mutemath's Grammy-nominated video for its 2007 single "Typical"—in which band members performed their parts backward, with the resulting footage played in reverse—was an appropriate introduction for the then-emerging quartet's relatively imaginative take on commercial modern rock. Taking inspiration from Muse's arena ambitions, Radiohead's adventurous atmospherics and Interpol's airtight arrangements, Mutemath melds dreamy synths to militant beats and charging guitars to soaring hooks. Calling the New Orleans foursome groundbreaking would be a reach, but at least they're deviating from the status quo, and they back it up with a dynamic live show. Given today's mainstream rock scene, that alone is worth applauding.—Spencer Griffith
