9/10 Clinton 28 November 2006
Clint here with the new Mice Parade   First and foremost this week we have their brand new long player 'Bem-Vinda Vontade'. Sometimes I feel like standing on the roof of Norman Towers and screaming to passers by about the genius of this band.  Why they aren't more worshipped I do not know. They contain the world's greatest drummer (and I'm including Phil Collins in this) they have made several brilliant albums, they often (as on this album) contain the sweet vocals of the lady from Mum and they make the kind of complicated yet accessible folky post rock that people hope to find in Fourtet's records. Opener 'Warm Hand in Farmland' is a dream come true. Everything I've been hoping to hear in music for the past 3 years in one track. Beautiful multi layered neo classical acoustic guitars, spiralling melodies, rampant drums, misery vocals. Its 'September Reverse' by Gastr Del Sol updated for 2005. The rest of the album follows along neatly with a much more 'pop' approach than before and so never really falls into the slightly muso territory that maybe has marred some of their other work (see also: Tortoise). Highly recommended CD & LP on Fat Cat.
