Two Weeks Notice... Of Mice & Musicians

Posted By on Fri, Mar 23, 2012 at 8:42 PM

Bottles & Bones - (4.7.12 // 4.21.12)

Of Mice and Musicians's 2nd album Bottles and Bones comes out in a couple weeks on  Five30 Music:

... A bassist setting funky grooves, an R&B-ready crooner, an experimental post-rock-leaning drummer, two new school rappers up front, a turntablist splashing in scratches and auxiliary samples at the fringes and a guitarist scorching out an amalgam of spacey tones....

...Of Mice & Musician don't really have a genre, so to speak and the thing about their 2nd album is it isn't one genre (rap, rock, reggae/pop or neo-psychedelic prog/metal...or even rap-rock), more so than any other; the spinning plates are balanced. Each song kaleidoscopes through mild zings of each stylistic-leaning of its seven respective members.

Release Show April 7th with: House Phone, Passalacqua, Detroit CYDI, Clear Soul Forces at The Northern Lights Lounge (660 W. Baltimore)

...OR...

Release Show April 21st with: The Definition, Doss The Artist, MidCoast Most, Magnum OPUS at the Pike Room (1 S Saginaw, Pontiac)
