Boston, United States (2004 – present)


Animal Hospital is Kevin Micka’s one-man musical recording/performance entity. Formed at the tail-end of Micka’s time with Boston band The Common Cold, Animal Hospital slowly began to take on a life of its own in 2004. A self-titled debut CD by Animal Hospital was released on Boston’s Mister Records that year and displayed Micka’s ability as a composer and engineer in communicating his creative expression. Since then, Kevin has consistently toured the United States, the U.K., and Europe throughout France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Denmark and Iceland. Within the last 5 years Micka has continued writing and releasing several additional tracks on various compilations around the world. Animal Hospital has won followers from all corners of the music world, earning himself spots with bands as diverse as The Jesus Lizard, Beirut, No Age, Neptune, Thrones, Dosh and The Great Redneck Hope (not to mention a recurring role as bumper music on Boston’s NPR station).

During performances, Micka buries himself in a pile of electronics-shelves of effects, mixing consoles, amps and delay units-while patiently constructing a layered nest of loops consisting of live drum beats, guitar chords, scrapes, chucks, chimes, and melodies resulting in anything from more conventional songs to meticulously crafted ambient movements on to full on improvisation.

Long a hidden treasure in Boston recording circles as a freelance recording engineer (for diverse projects such as Neptune, Helms, and Harry and the Potters) and a trusted electronics fix-it man, Micka has approached Animal Hospital over the last four years in the nooks and crannies of his schedule.
