US Space Rockers Dust Mice Sign With Epictronic


No Comments

Epictronic is thrilled to announce the collaboration with the US Space Rockers, Dust Mice, as they embark on a cosmic journey with their explosive new album, “Room Within A Room.” Room Within A Room finds Dust Mice at the crossroads between the vacuum of space and the eternal fire of the soul. The album has a more focused sound, with the same space-rock and garage roots, but there is a darker edge, a looming sense of dread in the spaced-out jams. Singles Room Within a Room and Dr. Beer take a cosmic journey through the fractal constructions our minds create that distort and control us. Archimedes Death Ray and Bergen/Giza/Tangier explore cycles of history and destruction with layers of distortion and repetition. Definitive recordings of original demos Space Magick and Ultrawave round out the album along with a cover of Hawkwind’s classic Uncle Sam’s on Mars. RIPX is a tour de force from drummer Zane Graham, with the rest of the band pushing their sounds to the edge, improvised in a room within a room. Dust Mice started in a cramped practice space in the Pacific Northwest with the intent to create a sound and vision of psych-tinged space rock. In the following years, they released 2 EPs (Dust Mice, Moon Fetus), and their first full-length album (Earth III). Room Within A Room is their 2nd album; recorded over the course of 2022 as they put the shards of pandemic-shattered lives back together. Although Dust Mice has developed their own distinct sound, they always return to their influence from the true Masters of the Universe, and at Hawkfest ’22 Dust Mice had the honor of sharing the stage with Hawkwind. Tragically, original drummer Zane Graham left this realm on his own cosmic journey at the end of 2022. The songs on Room Within A Room are his final recordings with Dust Mice; a summation of his time in the band and a lasting legacy of his contributions. Dust Mice are currently writing material for their next album and continue to perform live, regularly in the Seattle area.
