Of Mice & Musicians are a live hip-hop band and members of the Five30 Music roster. They recently released their second full length project, "Sugar In The Raw," described by the group as an album similar to sugar cane grown naturally and harvested by hand. This homegrown approach is more than evident throughout the album's 15 tracks, which includes stand-outs like "Summertime" and "Any Day Above Ground."
The band's use of natural drum kits, live bass lines and round guitar tones adds a feeling of completeness to their songwriting that is often lacking in strictly beat-based hip-hop. The verses are well crafted and the hooks are soulful and engaging.
If you're looking to add some substance to your music catalog, "Sugar In The Raw" is the way to go.
