A Mighty Mouse is many things. It’s an animated cartoon character familiar to viewers of Fox (at what age does a Fox viewer become bad? It must be sometime mid-teens I guess). It’s the name of the first Apple multi-button mouse (readers from before the tracking pad age might remember these things). And it’s also the name of a bunch of London electro-jazz-disco types. The new adventures of these mighty mice sees them set to drop a full length album called ‘Song With No Word’ on December 6th, an extended vocal-less piece of music split into “movements” (which is always a good sign).
They originally sent us ‘Movement 3’, a stomping robo-disco track that sounded like a galactic collision between ‘Once In A Lifetime’ and ‘Starlight’ (the Supermen Lovers version, not the Muse track). But then that got snapped up for a sync so instead here’s ‘Movement 5’, an almost equally as good track that takes the bass line from RATM’s ‘Know Your Enemy’ and runs it through a boffin’s lab of digital noises.
If you want another track, ‘Difficult Love’ – alongside some Mighty/Danger/Modest Mouse wordplay – hit up RCRD LBL.
Young Buffalo, meanwhile, are a 3-piece from Oxford, Mississippi. They’re purveying for your listening pleasure a demo of Beach House-y guitar textures and vocals (‘Catapilah’) and a more frenetic, harmonised treat (‘Three Deep’). They just signed with Fat Possum and just finished a debut album due for release in 2011. Expect a gust of hype to this way come in the new year…
