SATURDAY 8TH SEPTEMBER
MICE PARADE W/ SPECIAL GUEST TOM BROSSEAU
From its outset, Mice Parade has shown a boldly inventive and highly individual take on post-rock / electronica. Mice Parade, aka Adam Pierce, blends live instrumentation, layers of overdubs, and intricate percussion into a distinctive, playful sound. 2007's self titled release begins to even develop a pop strand with The twin drum kits bashing and rattling in the background, but leaving plenty of space to be occupied by vibraphone, electric and acoustic guitars, and cleverly arranged harmonies.
They Are Joined By Special Guest TOM BROSSEAU whose lovely, lilting, almost-feminine folk vocals guide Grand Forks like an affable ship captain sailing the calmest of seas. Hints of lap steel and Appalachian accents that reference his blue-grass upbringing make this a mature singer-songwriter record, if not quite predictably serene enough for the Jack Johnson set. But it’s beauty still lies in an eagerness to gently steer the boat and not rock it.
