These days I received an e-mail from - Noise that thinks ...


We're sending you the latest offering from new Canadian bluesy rockers The Micronite Filters. This 4-song EP called The Wrong Side of the Tracks is full of groove-heavy rhythm driving, dirty slick guitar sliding, key swinging, horn blowing, and well written word wailing. And it features some stellar vocals by Joan Smith of Toronto band Little Foot Long Foot.

Its a Canadian take on North Mississippi Hill country blues, alla The North Mississippi Allstars, R.L. Burnside etc... and would fit right in with the sounds of Seasick Steve etc...

You can listen to it online here:

Here's what some recent reviews have said:
"These shifty Canucks rock the blues like Ronnie Hawkin's demon seeds" - Rubber City Review, July 14, 2012

"A bluesier, more soulful version of proto-hard rock acts...tweaking the acid rock formula just enough to sound new again"
Benjamin Boles, Now Magazine January 7, 2012

"These dudes play music that hits you in your friggen guts. Body moving and toe tapping...they leave you with a feeling that's almost post-coital"
-, March 7, 2012

Its just a taste of what these MF's are cooking...they recently returned from a trip down to Oxford, MS to record with Mississippi hillbilly Jimbo Mathus (the Squirrel Nut Zippers, James Mathus and his Knockdown Society, Jimbo and the Tri-state Coalition). The new album will be one greasy-ass record, and looks to be the band's first full length vinyl - woohoo! So check out this EP, and stay tuned for more MF'n stuff. The band hopes to return to the US for a tour when the new album is done. In the mean time please enjoy the EP and share it with your friends, fans, and foes! And if you'd like a hard copy, send us a mailing address and we'll mail you one!

Yours in all things bent,

Mortimer Fritzhammer - Noise That Thinks...

In the words of Jon Spencer:

"The blues is #1, but I don't play no blues...I play rock and roll!"
