Product Description

About the Artist

Bats & Mice is a band hailing from Richmond, Virginia. The group was originally formed by three members of Sleepytime Trio. They began writing songs together in a new style that pursued melody and a pop sensibility more than they ever had before; however, the music still maintained the energy and drive of their previous efforts. This line-up produced Bats & Mice's first work, a self-titled CDep released on Lovitt records in fall 2000 to critical acclaim and mass popularity with college radio and fans alike.

As one of the members departed to concentrate on other musical projects, Bats & Mice welcomed two members from another groundbreaking outfit who were also venturing into similar musical forms. Thus, the band currently has two members of Sleepytime Trio (David NeSmith and Ben Davis) and two members of Four Hundred Years (Daron Hollowell and Ash Bruce). Other bands that members have been in: Rah Bras, Men's Recovery Project, Maximillian Colby, In Return, and Milemarker.

Fans familiar with Sleepytime Trio and Four Hundred Years should expect something different than the aforementioned bands. Bats & Mice play the sweetest rock intent on enthralling the most jaded listener. Their first full length, Believe It, Mammals, will be released in spring 2002.

Bats & Mice's intricate blend of not-so-saccharine pop and straightforward rock captured audiences as they played their first shows in December 2001. They plan to continue to write new material and tour extensively in 2002.

The music that Bats & Mice play is a bit of a departure from the members former outfits. The songs do not rock out in the sense that you'll be jumping around, filled with energy that a heavy metal fan would get (if they were like me), but they do rock. However, when I first started to listen to this, I had a hard time telling which tracks were which. After a while I got it, but it's still kind of hard. The songs are good (my personal favorite is Sliding Scale), but they have a very very very very watered down case of "If you've heard one, you've heard them all" syndrome.

This is one of the most amazing albums I have heard. I misplaced it for a few months and missed it quite a bit. When I recently rediscovered it, it seemed even better than before! I have seen the band live and they are fantastic! This is a great album for people who think hard core punk is a little too hard and radio music makes you want to punch the radio.
