Mouse Grey: The echo in my mind (Ep, 2011)


Mouse Grey son un trío de californianos. Bueno, mejor dicho, lo que antiguamente se conocía como un Power-Trio. Unos tipos obsesionados con el sonido del Grunge de los noventa, las guitarras encallecidas, los ritmos poderosos y la contundencia sonora. Al menos éso es lo que nos han hecho llegar en este Ep de tres temas que gentilmente nos han enviado a nuestro correo. Ellos tienen como sus referencias más cercanas a gentes como Smashing Pumpkins, Alice in Chains o Tamaryn. Compruébalo por ti mismo y saca tus conclusiones.

Mouse Grey – The echo in my mind (Ep, 2011)

“Similar to mainstream artists Silversun Pickups, the band trumpets its early Smashing Pumpkins influences through a megaphone, but there is much more going on here. Unlike Pickups’ spit-shined modern rock, Mouse Grey’s approach on this record is familiar but authentic, retaining a raw, unrefined garage sound that demands a tape deck. Fuzzed-up, guitar-driven louds and dreamy melodic quiets abound.
The slightly dirty strumming and slow, overdriven, shoegazer string bends on “Gone Away” sound like Pavement and My Bloody Valentine’s lost collaboration. This and the almost Zeppelin-esque heavy metal attack of “Dissonance,” the beautiful simplicity of the single-key piano melody on “These Times,” and the phasey, psychedelic drone of the album closer, “The Ascendance,” all make this worth a listen or two.”
Mouse Grey is currently performing throughout Ventura County and has been featured numerous times as a top rated gig by both the VCReporter and Ventura County Star. The band is currently slated to open for Peter Murphy of Bauhaus on March 11th, 2011 at the Majestic Ventura Theatre.
Mouse Grey’s newest release, ‘The Echo In My Mind’ EP marks the first release in a series of limited edition vinyl only EP’s that will eventually be packaged together as a full length release in 2012. ‘The Echo In My Mind’ is set to be released in April 2011 via Catch Hell Records.
Mouse Grey is Christopher Yanez (guitar, vocals), José Palomares (bass guitar) and Alex Jolly (drums)” (Facebook page)
