Album Review: Minks - By The Hedge (Captured Tracks)

Carnivorous, gothy, lo-fi and fuzzy - Minks rich denseness is far more satisfying than TPOBPAH

Though mention of the words ‘lo-fi’, ‘fuzzy’ and ‘goth pop’ might be enough to make you wish Kelis would come and stomp all over these blog-infesting rodents with her killer heels of mighty bangitude to fashion herself a new stole, hey – don’t hate the playa, hate the game. Anyway, the cavernous, gothy likes of ‘Out Of Tune’ have a depth tinted deeper than sepia, ‘Life At Dusk’ a rich denseness that makes this a much more satisfying and varied listen than the likes of TPOBPAH[b/]. The title of ‘[b]Folkin’ Hell’ even suggests a sense of humour. In summary then, better than most if you like that sort of thing.
