Mnemos EP (2012) Hours and Midnight on Earthship (2012)
Genres Christian rock, Experimental rock
Mnemos is a 2012 remix EP recorded by Experimental Christian rock band Falling Up. It was released on April 10, 2012 as part of a "pay-as-you-can" package on Groupees, a website which allows users to purchase packages containing various digital downloads. All of the proceeds from the album went to benefit the homeless, with over 3,200 meals being served from the project. Falling Up offered two reward packages, with the first consisting of three bonus tracks if there were over 1,000 downloads. Within the first day, the 1,000 mark was broken. After the promotion, the album became available for download on Falling Up's BandCamp page.
Although Mnemos is a remix album, most of the tracks are orchestral in nature, with various hooks in earlier tracks being used and repeated throughout Mnemos. The end result is that the tracks sound very dissimilar to the originals on which they were based. The band was only able to remix tracks from Your Sparkling Death Cometh, due to the rights of their prior works still being owned by BEC Recordings.
The Mnemos EP generally received positive reviews, with many noting that its nature was very different from Falling Up's earlier works, and describing the release as a "filler" between albums. Jesus Freak Hideout's Nathaniel Schexnayder said that Mnemos was "worth [a] few spins. But after fans have given their attention to the project for a couple of hours, it will no doubt appear as repetitive and forgettable", while Kaj Roth of Roth 'N Roll referred to the album as a "spiritual and dreamlike soundtrack."
The album contained seven basic tracks, with three bonus tracks released:
All tracks written by Falling Up, except where noted.
