Album Review

White Mice seemed to get more explicitly metal with each release over the years, so perhaps no surprise that they ended up with an album on the 20 Buck Spin label in 2009 — and less of a surprise that it was an explosive, angry and righteous mess. With offensive song titles that redefine the idea of a lethal pun — samples include "Placenta the Crotchtower" and "The Shroud of Urine" — it's little surprise that Ganjahovadose is out to find some way to shock, but at the same time there's a sense of ridiculous humor clearly at work here too. Perhaps it's not surprising in a time where sonic ugliness in and of itself is simply not an intrinsic signifier of potential worth as such — there are thousands upon thousands of homemade CDRs alone that demonstrate otherwise — but White Mice find their way to catchy antiriffs that emphasize tight grooves even when roared and echoed vocals slur all over them. The title track isn't exactly, say, the Pop Group, but might be nearer than some out there, a kind of heavy flow that feels both fast and queasily slow, a plunge through thick grimy liquid. Meanwhile when the band fully screams into full velocity, as on the opening of "PEEEuGenicyst," it's like a streamlined version of early Boredoms, less spastic but just as headspinning. On the down side, there's a feeling of general formula quickly established and then little varied, but that never stopped the Cocteau Twins — not that they would necessarily leap to mind when listening to White Mice, but opposites can attract.

Biography

Born: Providence, RI

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Needing only bass, drums, and an oscillator for their noisy and experimental take on grindcore, Providence, RI-based White Mice carry their demented act one step further by wearing mouse outfits during shows — bloodied mice that look like they just barely crawled out of a laboratory alive, that is. Accordingly, fans often insist that the trio must be seen live to really get the full White Mice experience; over time, they've shared gigs with bands like Dropdead and Lightning Bolt. Comprised...
