Critically acclaimed Indie Americana band Mipso continue expanding their sonic resources while doubling down on their experimentation with string band tradition. Dubbed traditionalist renegades, Mipsos music is influenced by the contradiction of their progressive home of Chapel Hill, North Carolina and the surrounding rural southern landscapes.
For their forthcoming 2017 album release, the quartet invite in pedal steel, drums, banjo and keyboards bringing Mipsos sharp lyrics, intricate song arrangements and distinctive and stirring sound into full bloom. Mipsos deft storytelling and smart pop melodies are vivid and rich on the bands third release. The albums 11 songs, all originals, seamlessly coalesce into a modern Americana classic.
Mipsos third album release follows up 2015s Old Time Reverie. Old Time Reverie shot up the Billboard charts, where it landed at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart and in the Top 25 of the Billboard Heatseakers Chart. With songwriting hailed as smartly written, hewing surprisingly close to gospel and folk while still sounding modern and secular. (Acoustic Guitar), the album was named among the Best Records of the Year by The Guardian - for the bands aptitude for stunning harmonies and for its lush and moving songs.
Look for Mipso touring with expanded instrumentation in spring/summer 2017 in support of their new album release.
