'candela' is the stunning new full-length from mice parade, a bright and vivd lp that omniverously references source material from across the globe and rebuilds it all into the distinctive, inimitable voice that mice parade has come to represent. 'candela' represents at once mice parade's most adventurous release and its closest to pure pop music. from the dense, rhythmically-intense 'currents' (featuring temporary residence's caroline lufkin), and its funk brio to 'pretending's devestatingly pretty drumkit / electric guitar interplay (pierce is a hugely accomplished percussionist, flamenco guitar player and general multi-instrumentalist), there are heady moments of pop brilliance amongst abstract, restrained eloquence. a rare record that reveals more with each listen, the ear is piqued by contrasting elements on every run through the length of each track: a melody line here, percussion pattern here, a melancholic and startlingly visual lyrical phrase elsewhere.
