Though they’re from Brooklyn, Country Mice’s psychedelia-meets-Americana makes them sound like they could be from the bluesy South or rootsy Midwest. Frontman Jason Rueger (who is actually originally from a little Kansas town called Beattie) is joined by guitarist Ben Bullington, bassist Mike Feldman and drummer Kurt Kuehn, and, together, the quartet’s blend of twangy folk and howling lo-fi make for a charming and compelling alt-country vibe.
Twister, the debut album by Country Mice, is available via Wao Wao/Kanine Records.
