Glide Review - Minks - By The Hedge

 Got a new review up over on Glide.

Read it right C'here!

It is from the Brooklyn Band (originally from Boston) Minks, By The Hedge.

The cycle of indie rock has seemed to shift from New Wave 80's into the noisy 90's and while some new bands go the loud amp guitar route, others take the softer road, and Minks are one of those. 

They have been vague in their origins, even finding out where they are actually from was a pain in the ass, but the music has something that resonates.  I will gladly admit this style isn't my favorite to listen to when I am hanging out, but that doesn't stop me from noticing quality. The sound is very reminiscent of the Beach House record from last year, but I dig this one a bit more.  There is talent here, but it is hard to pinpoint if any of these indie-dream pop groups will stick around...enjoy them while you can.

Anyway, here are some tunes:
"Funeral Song"
"Indian Ocean"
"Cemetery Rain"
