Country Mice - "Festival" MP3 (PopMatters Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

28 March 2011

Brooklyn's Country Mice are as rooted in classic rock as in the Twang. Twister, releasing on 7 June, should be a new favorite of the Wilco-loving masses.
 

Brooklyn’s Country Mice are made up of a band of Midwest transplants who come by their “country” sensibility naturally; frontman Jason Rueger is from a teeny town on the Kansas map called Beattie. Instead of heading to Nashvegas in search of country stardom, Rueger set his sights on Brooklyn and teamed with fellow Midwesterners Ben Bullington (guitar) and Kurt Kuehn (drums) to form a group as rooted in classic rock as it is in the Twang. Country Mice will release their debut, Twister, on 7 June, an album that should be a new favorite of the Wilco-loving masses.
