211: “Kupanda” by Mice Parade

Airbrush out my neck and chin.An amazing range of sounds comes out of this NYC-based band, led by percussionist and founding father Adam Pierce. Mice Parade is an anagram of his name.

Caroline Lufkin is the beautiful Okinawan-American singer who prominently portrays the feminine on most of the tracks on Mice Parade’s latest album, What It Means To Be Left-Handed (2010). The album is diverse, delicately sculpted, and every track is a unique experience.

You have to listen closely to understand lyrics, and sometimes I wish they’d speak up, but I guess being partially legible is part of the color they’re painting.

This one, “Kupanda,” can be enjoyed without one word being understood, mama way.
