NeuFutur Magazine Introduces MouseAbout

MouseAbout hails from the indie music hotbed of Austin Texas. On
their MySpace the band list under their musical influences as
everyone from The Beatles, pink Floyd, and AC/DC, to Johnny Cash
Elliot Smith, and Public Enemy. As you might imagine with such an
eclectic list their music is very hard to pigeonhole into one
particular style

I could hear everything from alternative, rock, 60’s pop, punk,
ska and jazz in the songs. The one constant that run through the
whole release though was a moody undertone. I’m not sure exactly
what it’s from. Maybe its the deep vocal tones or the unusual
sounds found in some of the songs.

…This self titled release from MouseAbout does a really nice job
of mixing styles to create their own unique sound and kept the
songs sounding fresh. Being an old trumpeter I also enjoyed the
trumpet work found on several of the songs provide by Steven Welch

This band has a bit of an offbeat side that comes through in the
song lyrics. On their MySpace site when answering the question
what their music sounded like they gave the answer ” Like Garbage,
not the band”

If you have a desire for something a little off the beaten music
path, with an edge of quirkiness then MouseAbout’s self titled
release is for you. CW Ross – Indie Music Stop
