Exclusive download: Mice Parade
Free track from New York genre fusion veterans
We're extremely happy to be able to offer a free download of this live track by New York collective Mice Parade to mark the release of their seventh album, Candela, today. In its six minutes, this version of "Couches & Carpets" encapsulates much of the diversity that has made Mice Parade a cult act over the past decade - from indie introspection to expansive post-rock guitars, jazz-funk grooves to melodies and techniques influenced by anagramatically eponymous band leader Adam Pierce's wide research as an ethnomusicologist.
In last week's review of the album, Thomas H Green found Candela taking him to "Hispanic gypsy bars" and "old world opium dens", and we hope this track will take you somewhere interesting too.
