Dust Mice: With A synth heavy post-wave jam about a space virus on a generation ship and people pushed to the limit by years in isolation.

Dust Mice – Eearth III

I don` like mice and I probably don`t like dust mice but he band Dust Mice is a space garage band from Seattle with fascinating music. The track Hepatitis X is a track taken from Dust Mice’s album Earth III due for re-release via Wormholedeath worldwide. A synth heavy post-wave jam about a space virus on a generation ship and people pushed to the limit by years in isolation.

Dust Mice is a 5 piece Space-Garage band from the Pacific Northwest. Analog synths, distorted saxophone and raw guitar combine with a driving rhythm section to deliver spaced out garage rock with influences from New Wave Sci-Fi, post-punk, and classic metal. Previous work includes 2 EPs and a digital single, which are all available (including bonus live tracks) on the Super Moon Fetus compilation.

Track list:

1.Choom Wagon

2.Eye Make You Eye  

3.Hepatitis X    

4.Solitude

5.Sky King

6.Crisis on Infinite Earths

7.Desert Bus

8.Mountain Wizzards

Space Chooglin. But not the current depressing reality of space exploration, the post-capitalist domination of the outer planets while USE (United Socialist Earth) rots away in self indulgent excess.

Less the cosmic promise of early Sci-Fi and more the anxious repetition of alarms that signal imminent oxygen depletion in 5…4…3…2.. X_X”

Earth III is the first album from Dust Mice, following up on the themes introduced in their EP Moon Fetus. The album was written while the band was actively gigging and the final form of many of the songs was worked out on-stage before tracking the album live. To get the layered, out of control sound Dust Mice hunkered down for a session of overdubs and extended jams. Those tracks were cut up and mixed throughout the album as sonic connective tissue, mimicking the chaotic sonic assault of a live Dust Mice show.

The studio version is a suitable replacement. Just remember to turn it up loud. Lyrical themes explore in tales of wizard cults (Mtn. Wizzards), suicidal androids (Eye Make You Eye), the existential burden of living on a generation starship (Hep X), and the self-mythologizing failures of American Imperialism (Choom Wagon, Sky King). This all comes together in a cover of Black Sabbath’s Solitude, interpreted as a charging space-garage celebration of humanity’s ultimate failure. The only note of hope comes from Desert Bus, an ode to psychedelic introspection and opening yourself to the majesty of the universe.

US space garage band Dust Mice are excited to announce that the cosmic spread of psych jams will continue and grow stronger. Earth III will be released worldwide in 2022 by Wormholedeath records. We are excited to have our music delivered to tons of new fans in new countries!

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6856 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
