They're in the All Music Guide (http://www.allmusic.com/),
but unfortunately AMG's psycho interface won't let me link
directly to the entry, so here's some copyright violation:

 The experimental electronica/post-rock of New York's Mice Parade,
 aka Adam Pierce, blends live instrumentation, layers of overdubs,
 and intricate percussion into a distinctive, playful sound. Mice
 Parade's 1998 debut single My Funny Friend Scott introduced
 Pierce's genre-bending style, which he expanded on with that
 year's full-length debut, The True Meaning of Boodleybaye. With
 1999's Ramda, Pierce upped the ante once more by recording the
 tracks and mixing the album in one take, lending it an improvised
 feel. 2000 saw the release of Collaborations, which featured
 contributors like Curtis Harvey, Jim O'Rourke, Doug Scharin, Aki
 Tsuyoko, and Nobukazu Takemura.

Thank you Heather Phares!

I guess it's a reference to the stylized Icehouse pyramid
nests of the album cover?
