Product Notes

The third full length from this long standing Massachusetts indie rock group. This time acheiving a more fluid and sometimes atmospheric sound. But never fear, the songs are still constructed from stacked odd-ball chords and tones that allow melodic glimmers and hooks to escape. Recorded in many short bursts of activity over almost 2 years of late nights at the storied Slaughterhouse Studios (Hadley & Westhampton, MA). Mastered at Peerless Mastering Studios in Newtonville, MA. 'The Mitchells are another local outfit that's stayed the course for [over] a decade, although in the Mitchells' case the course is an angle-filled zigzag into maze land. Since their cassette debut in 1994, the guitar/bass/drums/vocals group has gotten more and more scientific, experimenting with just how discordant you can make a pop song without stripping it of it's catchiness. Their guitar and bass parts duel in gentlemanly fashion, parrying and lunging, sometimes joining forces for the chorus. The band outlasted it's heroes Polvo and Archers of Loaf, and has honed a truly original sound.' -Daily Hampshire Gazzette (Northampton, MA)
