I scrolled through some year-end lists this week to see if I missed any good records this year. In Louder Than War’s Top 50 I came across the name Mick & The Mellotronics at no.27, unknown to me but described as a ‘classy, intelligent art-school guitar band’. At Bandcamp I was immediately enthusiastic about the cool art work: a pigeon with an Elvis wig! The music and lyrics are so captivating that it pays to spend your time on them; the LP gets 9/10 reviews for a reason. The debut album ½ Dove – ½ Pigeon is available via Landline Records.
“I titled the record ½ Dove – ½ Pigeon because I thought it was an honest reflection on how most people see themselves.” – Micko Westmoreland
