Mr. Meeble is an electronic rock band from Phoenix, Arizona formed in late 2005 by Devin Fleenor and Michael Plaster. The band has grown its fan base primarily via websites such as YouTube,[1] and continues to self-release music and videos on its label, Absolute Motion. They are highly regarded for their visually intense live shows, combining video projections, RGB lasers, and other custom-made visual devices to enhance the mix of electronics and live instrumentation.[2] A writer for Wired.com described their sound as "coded into the musical matrix somewhere between Depeche Mode and Massive Attack".[3] In their own biography,[4] the band names Thom Yorke and Air as influences. Another journalist wrote "Mr. Meeble's sound falls somewhere between Radiohead and Stereolab".[5]
