Mice Parade was originally the solo project of New Yorker Adam Pierce, who has also played in Swirlies, The Dylan Group, HiM, múm, and Philistines Jr.. From its outset, Mice Parade showed a boldly inventive, highly individual take on post-rock / electronica. Following 1998′s Bubble Core album, ‘The True Meaning Of BoddleyBaye’, their first FatCat album, ‘Ramda’ (1999), forged a distinctive, immersive audio space of piled-up percussion and atmospheric, hook-laden melodics. Featuring guest vocals from Letitia Sadier and Kristin Valtisdóttir, Mice Parade’s June 2007 eponymous offering, could be seen as a refined take on the ground made over the previous two, merging folk-tinged electronica with the ‘Loveless’ era swoon of My Bloody Valentine, the rhythmic subtlety of Can, and the opaque melodic experiments of Brian Eno. Yet as ever, Mice Parade’s sound is essentially modern, informed by an esoteric palette, retaining a familiar acoustic presence via an uncliched take on folk/world influences. The 10th of Mice Parade Album will be out in september 2012 and presented in an acoustic trio version on stage.
