Musee Mecanique, Fit & Starts Single Review


Believe It Or Not, Musee Mecanique are named after a museum of mechanical toys, from 'Hand cranked music boxes to video games', located at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. (Could have been worse, they might have been called Ripley's!) The band, once of two, but now of five, have a fondness for antique instruments and even play some contrived and experimental devices when on stage. 'We love to make a song that has its own soul, just like the machines they have over at the museum.'

The band have been around since 2006, the original members Micah Rabwin, and Sean Ogilvie grew up as childhood friends. The more recent addition to the ranks has come in the form of three men who bizarrely, or not, all play the Glockenspiel.

Their latest release is poised to coincide with a few live dates here in Blighty. The 'new' single is taken from their debut album Hold This Ghost which was itself released some 2 years ago back in September 2008. The Portland, Oregon, quintet share the same mixer, Tucker Martine, as their fellow zip code addressee, Laura Viers. Whilst the two of them may be in the same folksy ball park, Musee Mecanique have little of the happier vibes that permeate through some of Laura's work.
