I first heard Mirah unknowingly as background vocals on some tracks of the Microphones almost two years ago. After doing a little research I discovered Mirah and her wonderful music. Her new album “The Old Days Feeling” was released today. This is actually a compilation of old and unreleased material. Though these songs weren’t meant to be together as an album, it still feels coherent and could be treated as an album. Many of the songs are pretty light, perfect for the summertime. The second track “Slighted” has an old school ska groove that almost sounds like a better more mellow version of early No Doubt. An alternate version of “The Sun” is the highlight track of this album. A bunch of familiar voices from the Pacific Northwest come in about halfway through the song inviting everyone listening to sing along.  I wonder why some of these songs weren’t released, because I think they’re just as good as anything else she has released.
