Mute Math 

Not too many New Orleans musicians had a 2006 to match that of Mute Math, whose year-in-review includes (but is not limited to) the following honors: invitations to perform on the highly trafficked festival circuit (Bonnaroo, CMJ, Voodoo and the resurrected Lollapalooza); a spotlighted tour of live TV shows (Jimmy Kimmel, MTV, et. al.); and the making of a brain-bending video for the band's first single, "Typical," a backward-shot marvel that recalls Christopher Nolan's 2001 film Memento. There were also the small matters of a debut reissued and a lawsuit resolved -- the latter a dispute over misrepresentation from Warner Bros. Records, which sought to market the band in the same contemporary Christian channels as Earthsuit, the previous outfit of Mute Math frontman Paul Meany. An amicable settlement was reached in August, and in September, Warner Bros. Records officially released the group's self-titled debut LP. Slick and self-assured, the disc pairs impassioned Sting-like vocals with danceable, synth-driven electropop. The blog-darling, indie-pop trio Somebody Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin opens. Tickets $15. -- Noah Bonaparte Pais 8:30 p.m. Mon., May 7 House Of Blues, 225 Decatur St., 310-4999; www.hob.com
