This is a past event.

Mice Parade, Alameda 

When: Sun., June 2, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $10
Early Mice Parade albums like Ramda, The True Meaning of Boodleybaye, and Mokoondi featured an interesting array of tracks that blended minimalist IDM, neo-exotica, and downtempo post-rock. Over the last dozen or so years, Mice Parade leader and dexterous percussionist Adam Pierce has gravitated toward a more precious, cutely melodic sound that seems to be merging with that of the Icelandic group Múm (whose Gunnar Örn Tynes now plays with Mice Parade). The new full-length, Candela, finds Pierce & Co. keeping the rhythms bustling and the guitar surprisingly bristling while Gisellse Saad Assi adds delicate vocal embroidery. These new songs rock harder than much of Mice Parade's dozy '00s output; unexpected positive development! DAVE SEGAL
