You’ll recall that a couple of weeks ago I caught the second gig by the reactivated Mitchell Museum at the Doghouse. And straight away there were a couple of things that really impressed me.
First off, the set was based almost entirely on new material with 7 of the eighth songs contenders for Mitchell Museum album number 2. Secondly, and most importantly, it was simply just how good the new tunes actually sound.
As discussed in the interview I did with them before that show, there’s an element of sadness to these songs or, as Kris describes them, Mitchell Museum songs “without all the multicoloured streamers and banging”.
I’m pretty certain, having had the benefit of listening to a recording of the show several times, that these songs are going to generate a fair bit of excitement across the land in coming months as they’re both melodic and more mature than previous material whilst still retaining essential elements of the Mitchell Museum identity.
Anyhow, here’s a sneak preview of the new material selected by the band from the aforementioned bootleg and used with permission:
