about

Recorded completely to 2" tape by the same guy and in the same basement as the Presidents' original version of Kitty, Mind Vice's Humanimality continues their signature "sludgefunk" sound.

"Bluesmotorwolf" was heavily inspired by the iconic energy of the late Lemmy Kilmister (as the name implies) with just enough harmonica and slap bass to make it Mind Vice. Walter O'Toole's soulful vocals complete this energetic homage-turned-tribute.

"Congress of the Crow" combines Michael Knapp's tasty stoner-rock riffage with the signature bass talkbox sound of Ian "liquid fingers" Sides. Miles Hubbard's heavy hitting drums contrast with Walter O'Toole's vocals that range from brother's Gibb style falsetto to powerful rock melodies. A bass-talkbox-slide solo rounds out this groovy number.

"Kitty" is a vice-ified version of the Presidents of the United States' classic tune, complete with funkification and of course, copious meows.

"Break the Cage (Little Monkey)" taps into the bands primal energy for a fast but thought provoking exploration into the relationship between humanity, nature, and technology.

Recorded & produced by Conrad Uno @ Egg Studios.
