In House #1672: The Minders' It a Bright Guilty World; New Our Lady of the Highway, The Pipettes
Originally a mid-90's off-shoot of the Elephant 6 collective, The Minders have since done a more than serviceable job of establishing their own identity. Over the course of three full-lengths and a smattering of EPs the Portland, OR-based band have become well-honed craftsmen of 60's-infused indie-pop.
Their fourth release, It's a Bright Guilty World, dropped last week on Future Farmer and does not disappoint, with the trio of Martyn Leaper, Rebecca Cole, and Joel Burrows now making up the band. There are vintage Minders moments, as on "Don't You Stop," and "Accidental Joy," as well as new, folkier flavors like "Saturday Morning," and "Remember, Remember." The Minders are currently touring in support of the new release and hit Salt Lake City's Kilby Court on August 26th.
