Joziah Curry: "What color is my hair?" Hair stylist: "Mousy brown."
Their name may have simple beginnings, but since forming a little more than a year-and-a-half ago, "Mousy Brown" has now come to represent the collaboration of locals Connor Robinson, Steven Toney, Ben Clingan, Mike Swain and Curry. On Friday, the Boise band will celebrate hundreds of hours of rehearsals and plenty of studio time with the release of their first full-length album, Bronze Turbo. The band blithely refers to their sound as "Bill Cosby rock." But all kidding aside, Bronze Turbo contains 11 tracks of eclectic jazz-rock and Minus the Bear-esque dreamscapes with a sprinkling of reggae beats, some saxophone and a sense of joy.
"Our intent is to release dopamine in the people listening to our music," Swain said. "We have a great time when we play, and we want everyone listening to have as much fun as we are."
