Product Description

The Future's Always Perfect by The Minders

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.

Short on running time, but long on charm, the third full-length from Portland, Oregon ensemble the Minders bursts with irrepressibly catchy indie-pop confections. Whether by design or mere coincidence, the similarity between the chord progression of the opener, "It's So Hard" and the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again" points up the band's Anglophile tendencies; "All The Way Round," which closes the 26-minute program, could pass for an outtake from Belle & Sebastian's If You're Feeling Sinister. But the Minders bear the closest semblance to are fellow Rose City residents Quasi, with whom they share an emphasis on boy-girl vocals, somersaulting drums, and vintage keyboard textures. In the hands of member Rebecca Cole, the latter element is easily the most memorable of the band's assets on this delightful disc, from the "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida"-on-45-not-33-RPM organ of "Tearaway," to the slide whistle-sounding synthesizer curlicues that ornament "Hahaha." --Kurt B. Reighley

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT EVERYBODY CAN LIVE ON GOLDEN STREET! December 7, 2003
By More M
Format:Audio CD
First off, unlike the above editorial review, I can't call this a full-length disc...I think it's an EP, and the price point bears that fact out. And you can tell by my review title that I don't think it's as good as the stunning "Golden Street." Having said that, there are some things to like about this disc. The first 3 tracks do have that indie-pop lo-fi flavor. And Martin Leaper is in fine vocal form. But I feel the disc is a little too long on the repetitiveness of the farfisa organ, a sound which I generally like. And one song is so repetitious, you'll be reaching for the >> button like me. In general, the words are difficult to decipher (and not included), and I think that takes away a bit of the fun for me, again as compared to "Golden Street," or, for that matter, "Hooray For Tuesday" as well! Hey, how do you follow-up to "Golden Street" anyway?
