Biography

Phoenix, AZ, USA (2005 – present)

Mr. Meeble is a Phoenix, AZ, USA band, formed in late-2005, by Devin Fleenor and Michael Plaster. They make glitchy organic and dark - connected by bits of soul, hip-hop and rock. Their latest is EP “Nostalgic for Now” (Jun 2012, self-released).

Flying in the face of earthly convention, Mr. Meeble issues a warning to everyone who checks out their indie début album: “Never Trust the Chinese” (Jun 2008, Absolute Motion). Between its title and content - this trio’s sensual and soulful pop meets dark electronica record is bound to drop jaws, turn heads and offend, oh, maybe about a billion people.

But it’s nothing personal… well, except for the one nameless female who inspired this collection of songs that tell stories of the denial and despair of lost love, personal accountability, remembering, mourning and finally, just maybe, a glimmer of hope.

Like their nearest ‘sounds kinda like’ cousins, Mr. Meeble incorporates both stellar instrumental work and an ethos of lyrical authenticity. Reminiscent of fellow French band Air, NTTC has moments of smooth, breathy vocals over spacey synths, chilled-out Rhodes and orchestral strings. At other times, it sounds similar to Thom Yorke’s Eraser with its emotive, pained vocals over minimal, tense electronics. Those familiar with Massive Attack’s Mezzanine will identify with NTTC’s dark, plodding and ominous vibe. The curious mix of stops, glitches, pops, whizzes, bleeps, stutters, and scratches together with sweeping, sometimes unnerving, visceral emotion is as close to opposites becoming singularly effective as you will find in music, or any art form, for that matter.
