Bothan Spies is an original, avant-MIDI rock band from Long Island, New York. The music is distinctive for its complex harmonies, subtle off-timings, and conversations between guitar and piano. Everything is interpreted from a MIDI platform in Mike Calvet's mind where he is musically invincible, creating impossibly fast drum beats, physically unreachable chords, etc. The result is high-striving, unlikely compositions with the illusion of a super-human (dare we say, 'Jedi') touch.
"Bothan Spies has a sound that is all its own."
-Good Times Magazine
"Bothan Spies, passionate and driving, utilized fuzzy melodies, a mix of keyboard and guitar over electronic twists and turns, creating moody and atmospheric, yet danceable indie rock."
