Critically acclaimed Indie Americana band Mipso continue expanding their sonic resources while doubling down on their experimentation with string band tradition. Dubbed â€śtraditionalist renegades,â€ť Mipsoâ€™s 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 â€“ bringing Mipsoâ€™s sharp lyrics, intricate song arrangements and distinctive and stirring sound into full bloom. Produced by Bon Iver bassist Brad Cook, Mipsoâ€™s deft storytelling and smart pop melodies are vivid and rich on the bandâ€™s third release. The albumâ€™s 11 songs, all originals, seamlessly coalesce into a modern Americana classic.
Mipsoâ€™s third album release follows up 2015â€™s 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 â€śsmartly written, hewing surprisingly close to gospel and folk while still sounding modern and secular.â€ť (Acoustic Guitar), the album was named among the â€śBest Records of the Yearâ€ť by The Guardian - for the bandâ€™s â€śaptitude for stunning harmoniesâ€ť and for its â€ślush and moving songs.â€ť
Look for Mipso touring with expanded instrumentation in spring/summer 2017 in support of their new album release.
Mipso is: Jacob Sharp (mandolin, vocals), Wood Robinson (bass, vocals), Joseph Terrell (guitar, vocals), Libby Rodenbough (fiddle, vocals)
