Overview
Mythos, the duo of Bob D'Eith and Paul Schmidt, specialize in artistic music that blends electronic rhythms and lush synthesizers with acoustic sounds and occasional multi-cultural influences. PURITY, their first album for Alula Records, revels in the hallmarks of the band, featuring a dreamy, beat-driven soundscape where vocal samples, piano and guitar swim amidst mood-heavy synth backdrops. Like fellow chill-tronica producers B-Tribe, Mythos often explores Spanish themes on PURITY, folding Latin-tinged wordless vocals and flamenco guitar into the mix on songs like "Alten Maria" and "Andalucia." "Dream" exhibits the group's flair for soft, stirring melodies and "Mizo's Gift" melds sparkling bits of piano with a lush rhythms and soft strings for a marvelously soothing effect. This is an album filled with details and nuance that suits it well for repeated listening.

Item Details
Written and performed by pianist Bob D’Eith and guitarist Paul Schmidt, the music Mythos makes is hauntingly beautiful and otherworldly.

Purity is the Vancouver-based duo’s latest CD release, and it continues their unique musical fusion. Veteran jazz bassist Rene Worst teams up with worldbeat percussionist Pepe Danza to ground Mythos’s seductive melodies with sensuous, juicy rhythms. Another Vancouver-based jazz stalwart, vocalist Jennifer Scott, contributes ethereal, soaring vocals to the evocative mix, and violinist Cameron Wilson and cellist Finn Manniche add hypnotic string embellishment to this edition of the band’s singular sound. Mythos has sold over 100,000 recordings over the course of three previously released albums. Mythos, Reality of a Dreamer, and Eternity share a similar artistic focus with the recently released Purity. Each features surrealist, dream-like illustrations in the cover artwork, underlining the recordings’ singular sound and vision.

“Guitarist Paul Schmidt and keyboardist Bob D’Eith compose instrumentals that pack quite an emotional wallop of melodic and rhythmic structuring. Instead of tonal ambiguities, the due fashion tight and potent romantic poems that draw as much upon flamenco themes as Enigma-style wordless soprano vocals.” — New Age Retailer

“The shadows cast by the web of life fall under scrutiny in this collaboration by two of the Western world’s favorite instruments, guitar and piano.”— NAPRA Review

“Hard to describe yet easy to fall in love with. The combination of rhythm and space is a total success in utilizing hypnotic dance grooves that churn beneath elegant melodies, all instantly familiar sounding … it keeps sounding better with each listen.” — Heartbeats

“Mythos combines a variety of styles and tempos, all of which are refreshingly original. Fans of Deep Forest and Enigma may find themselves really enjoying this one.” — Hear Music, World Music In Review
