M.I.J was a emo band that began in 1994, they self released a demo an a full length. These had a more post punk sound but later changed once they released their debut 7" called 300 miles. Some people compare them to the promise ring but I absolutely find that band specifically boring. Jeff Hanson has a pretty unique voice in which I find it better than Sunny day real estate for that matter. 300 miles was released by one percent records in 1996. After a couple of years the band had their debut full length out on Caulfield records sometime in 1998 entitled "The goodnight radio" which follows the same pattern as 300 miles. I had found a CD copy of this one over at midheaven mailorder for 1 dollar so I snagged one for this post. The band broke up after this and Jeff Hanson did his solo for a bit until his death in 2009. He did make about 4 solo releases. MIJ caught my eye when I saw them on the Caulfield catalog. I do recommend checking the self released demo and other CD, I will just post up what I have of theirs which is 300 miles and the goodnight radio.
