Mice on Stilts, are a seven-piece who describe themselves as cinematic doom folk.

Yes, you read that right, cinematic doom folk. That’s cinematic as in film-like, doom as in the video game, and folk as in music of the people. People wearing cable-knit jerseys ;-).

It’s a throwaway description, like something you’d hear on The Hobbit soundtrack, right? Maybe. The track I featured, Binocular Bath, was released just at the end of last month.

You’ll find them on bandcamp, where the song is a free download, but you will also find them on theaudience.co.nz, a groovy little site chock-full of newly released and unreleased music from what seems like an ever-increasing number of artists.
