Silvermouse in the Press

 

Press for Earthadelik

 

 although it’s an intimidating listen with ten suite-like songs, Silvermouse’s latest LP is one that I would tell audiences to give themselves over to when examining its tracklist. This record requires a lot of focus to completely understand, but for those of us who live for supremely complex music set to a danceable groove, it doesn’t get much better than an album like Earthadelik.”
– Anne Hollister, The Indie Source

“…Meditative and entrancing music that sounds best on the dance floor. It also should be turned up loud to where you can feel the frequencies of the music travel through your body. Oh and that sub bass needs to be felt as well. This is an album that hits the heart of rave culture. There is no denying that.”
– Dan Weston, Divide and Conquer Music

Driven by intense rhythms and organic, world-inspired instrumentation in such distinct genres as experimental, electro-acoustic, psychedelic and trance, ‘Earthadelik’ is a invigoratingly original and brilliantly satisfying new album from a band that deserves to be celebrated.
– Karen Benardello, ShockYa.com

“Earthadelik is an album on mission. From the top, the album offers a mysterious and ambient vibe. It also introduces the dark and washed-out guitars, whose riffs will serve as a constant dynamic element throughout the album. If taken as a whole, Earthadelik evokes a feeling of growth.”
– Thorne Stone,  ReviewFix.com

“Our Big Blue Marble now has a defining Soundtrack, one that pulse and beats with the life blood of this world…Earthadelik is the vision of the worlds music of the future, the blend of the anatomical and the autotomical, the natural and supernatural, a divine evolution of sound…I feel Silvermouse has truly tapped into the Universal Mind.”
– Joseph Timmons, Indie Pulse Music

“…There’s very little else to compare this with right now, and yet even with that – where most artists will reach for originality, and come out lacking substance or appeal – the sound just fits. It works, it energizes, it allows you to escape – whatever you need from it, this is music production with an undeniably creative depth; composition with intention, professionalism, and a respectable lack of concern for what others are doing on the scene.  Brilliant. A pleasure to lose yourself in for a while.”
– Rebecca Cullen, Stereo StickMan

Press for Space Country

“These are some righteous guys….well produced and very well executed…outrageously cool. The ripping guitar in [Pear Tree] for example or the violin in [Surge] both really got and kept my attention. At times I’m reminded of Iggy Pop. I hear that kind of creative weirdness in Space Country. All of a sudden there is a “BOOM” that just sounds cool as hell and you think “Where did THAT come from?” I admire their creativity. I dig their philosophy and respect the proficiency with which they make their music.”
– The Grouchy Gaijin

“Trance music is normally more appropriate in club and with a little alcohol in the system rather than listening to it at home. This rule is about to be broken with Silvermouse’s Space Country LP. [It is] a folky middle-eastern techno blend… Surge develops Eastern-classical melodies with Handley picking up the violin and Miss Jojo adding the drum machine and the retro record scratches. Adding a mystical flute in Sunshine shows them getting their bearings…a brilliant double act…trippy whirlwind…
– Anastasia Aboim, New-Reviews.co.uk

“Amazing guitar lines combined with a sense for rhythm and beats weave into a cohesive journey for the listener.”
– KulturTerrorismus.de

Silvermouse’s sound is somewhere in between trance and freestyle psychedelic rock. The sonic space they create is rather impressive for just two people. Space Country is an approximately eighty-four minute long mindfuck of an album. Silvermouse hits a real groove, and their composition really begins to show itself. Space Country sounds like an album that would be best heard live, with big speakers, a large crowd of people, and plenty of psychedelics.
– Anthony Gonzalez, In Your Speakers

“Silvermouse is the music version of contemporary art, and Space Country is just another bizarre masterpiece…a unique sound that can barely be described until you listen. Many of the songs in this album are like mixing hot and cold water, the sounds are quite opposite but together they create a neutral state of awesome.

Space Country is definitely something I’ve never heard before, with its transcendental aura and intriguing sounds, the music will transport you to another realm of glowing tropical flowers, metallic walls and gypsy fairies. If you want to expand your musical palate and delve into a new level of hipster, listen to this.”-
– Camila Acosta Audio Arsenal Magazine

“Spacey, exotic musical flavors. If the music finds your groove the exotic, psychedelic, trance inducing sounds will have you dancing.”
– Mike Spain, CW’s Place

“They deliver a spacious and intoxicating instrumental ambience… a sound that resonates of The Indian Sub-Continent, Ibiza and Haydn… These two have combined their polar influences though dexterous improvisation and hone it to a sound that naturally feeds in to the cortex, taking over the head, that marks Silvermouse as a band well worth time getting to know.”
– Tim, Indie Bands Blog

PRESS FOR SILVERMOUSE

“[Silvermouse] utilizes off-kilter beats and psychedelia to produce highly danceable music that will keep you guessing… you’ll feel like you know these songs in what can only be described as a primitive and evolutionarily ingrained sense of rhythm and beats…you’ll be humming the group’s tunes for days, wondering how music can be this good and why you didn’t know about Silvermouse sooner.”
– Alex De Vore, Santa Fe Reporter

“It reminded me of why I dance all night, meeting strangers without words, without ego, letting the euphoric electronic sounds control my emotions, and how live electronic sounds bring me back to earth. You do it with style. Silvermouse are Earth Trance.”
– Eddie Bammeke, Techno / Trance Producer, London, UK

“It’s fun to listen to, but to see [Silvermouse] live is just a treat!”

– Paul Ruth, The Independent Music Scene

“Silvermouse is much more than a run-of-the-mill electronic group. The instrumentals take it to a new height of creativity and fun. A+.”
– Alex Devore, The Santa Fe Reporter

– Charlotte Jusinski, SFReeper.com
