The quartet known as Mumpsy all seem to gravitate towards the melodies of early and mid-sixties Brit Pop bands. Punk expression lends itself via the Misfits and the Stooges, and that's what adds to the excitement of seeing Mumpsy play. Melody and harmonies are abound, yet they are delivered in a swirl of madness and energy.

With the release of their 2005 debut LP, "The Exuberance of Peachtree," Mumpsy positioned themselves with the likes of early Of Montreal and lo-fi charm. In 2007, the EP "3 People" was met with universal critical acclaim. They performed at CineVegas 07 for the "Ocean's 13" after party at the Stratosphere Hotel in June 2007 after a national outing in May billed as the "3 Bands in One Van" tour. Since their incept, Mumpsy has logged over 130 shows, and the list keeps growing.

But the rampant critical acclaim doesn't end there. In December 2007, Mumpsy wrote and released a Christmas song for Sufjan Steven's "Great Xmas Song Xchange," it won
first place in the "Best Garage Pop" category. In March 2008 while at SXSW the band was informed they would be getting on a plane in April to headline the CMJ Collegiate Nationals Music Festival in San Diego. The event was aired nationally on CBS in May.

In fall 2008 Mumpsy will be touring to promote their new full-length LP “Cat & Canary.” This highly anticipated treasure will be the band’s third album. It is to be released nationally by Post*Records in October 2008. Recommended!
