Paper Mice biography
PAPER MICE is a three-piece whirligig from Chicago that blends a freakish range of influences into miniature, prog-punk puzzles. The band is a fixture in Chicago's tight-knit DIY community, performing their high-wire "stop-start mess of rhythmic tics and awkward face plants" for dance-soaked warehouse hounds throughout the Midwest and East Coast since 2007. Their first album, "Paint it Pink", featured sixteen short, spastic songs about bizarre news stories, botched surgeries, and hirsute politicians. The follow-up, "The Funny Papers", continues the band's jagged jaunt through the world of current events with eleven tracks about canine heroes, fast-food meltdowns, and Dolly Parton. The album was completed over three days in an elementary school gymnasium-turned giant, temporary recording studio. The comic artist, Paul Hornschemeier, designed and illustrated the album's artwork. Two of the band members are music teachers, devoted to spreading their love of musical fun and mayhem to America's youth. They love animals.

Review by A Bard

4 stars If I had to describe Paper mice's Funny Papers in one sentence I would say It is a mix between Jazz and punk. It sounds like a labyrinth of complex punk rock riffs. The songs in this album aren't very long but it is made up by having a complex sound. It is very jazzy in my opinion. The closest thing I could compare it to is if Gentle Giant was a Hard Rock band and didn't have a piano. It is fast in its playing, feeling a bit like metal. All of the Musicians are skilled with their instruments. I highly suggest you give this album a try.
Thanks to octopus-4 for the artist addition. and to DamoXt7942 for the last updates
