Mio - jedes wort eine lüge

Leipzig, Germany was probably one of the greatest cities I have ever had the pleasure of playing in.  Mio comes from Leipzig and I can't help but envy their being situated in a city that has such a thriving network of DIY hardcore.

Mio gives us five songs of female fronted chaos here that sounds very similar to bands like Koaspilot, Caught in the Fall and Orchid. 

The production is a little raw here and I think with a better recording some of the more chaotic musicianship would shine a bit more.  That said, the music seems very well cared for and carefully arranged.  The highlight is the epic "hin und wider" which clocks in at almost eight minutes.
