Musee Mecanique – Sleeping In Our Clothes

NAME: Musee Mecanique
SINGLE: Sleeping In Our Clothes
YEAR: 2010 (May 3rd)
LABEL: Souterrain Transmissions
RATING: 5/5

FIVE WORD REVIEW: Anything but mechanical, beautifully simple.

LOCATION: Portland, Oregon

LINE UP: Micah Rabwin (vocals/guitar/musical saw/keyboard) / Sean Ogilvie (vocals/keyboard/guitar/accordion/melodica) / Matt Berger (drums/percussion/glockenspiel) / Jeff Boyd (bass/glockenspiel/cassette player) / Brian Perez (keyboards/ lapsteel/ glockenspiel/ melodica/ percussion)

WHAT’S THE STORY?: Fingers squeaking over strings, soft sympathetic vocals, ‘Sleeping In Our Clothes’ is like a thoughtful postcard from someone you miss. When you realise their albums glorious conception took place in an antique penny arcade game museum it’s almost too perfect…almost, actually it’s just perfect enough.

SOUNDS LIKE: Arcade Fire instrumentation, Sufjan Stevens lyricism,

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF YOU LIKE: The sound of their home studio: “Tack pianos, trumpets, musical saws and garage sale Casio keyboards mingle among forgotten amateur landscape painting, 1930s-era radios and hand-cranked ice cream makers”
