The Minders: Psychedelic Blacktop (2022)
Standouts include the sweet "Magic Anorak" and the synth-abetted "Listen! The Bugle Calls." "On My Own" offers chiming jangle (and, ok, it wigs out a bit at the end of the song, finally some of that psychedelic blacktop we were promised); and album closer "These Days" is an understated charmer.
Really nice stuff. You can pick it up at Bandcamp.
Here's the video for "Let's Go Driving":...and an audio rip for "These Days":
The new release also gave me an excuse to put together a new Minders playlist. Check it out!
