Dancing Mice: Acme (album review by Christa V.)

“Acme” is the eighth album from Dancing Mice, a UK based band who write (self-described) “quirky songs.” Their sound has a really interesting blend of indie folk and electropop. Nearly all of their songs have stunning guitar and strings work, but they know when to incorporate a horn or two when needed! The lyrics definitely confirm that the group has an excellent sense of humor when it comes to making music. The opening track is terrific and is a bop, plus it includes some sweet horn lines as well. The other stand out song is the closer of the album, track 12, and it also is a fast-paced song you can easily dance to. Several of the songs in the middle tend to drag a little, but there are gems to be found there as well! Favorite tracks: 1, 7, 12
