Tip Sheet: The Magic Mice

Who: The Magic Mice

Dossier: Formed last year, the Magic Mice feature Aaron Betcher and Chad Peterson, both formerly of O'er the Ramparts.

In Their Words: Wisely, these cats opt to let the music speak for itself.

Sounds Like: Breathy and languid one moment, on songs like "Body slash Soul," and vibrant and expansive the next, on tracks such as "Dreams of Reason," the Magic Mice play a brand of classic, guitar-driven indie pop that would be completely at home on labels like Merge or Barsuk. Download "Stormcoated" here.

Our Take:The Magic Mice have played only a handful of shows so far, none of which we've been able to catch. But if the live show is half as good as the few songs we've heard, this band will have absolutely no problem finding an audience -- and quickly.
