MINKS

“If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that Captured Tracks was releasing some lost tapes by a band called Minks from 1985 or so. By The Hedge sounds alternately dated and fresh at the same time. The singles released last year as a tease are included here as the New Order-ness is in full effect “Funeral Song,” and “Ophelia,”. While those tracks were impressive and really whet my appetite for the album, the greatest triumphs are new to By The Hedge” [The Big Takeover]

As This week In Indie pointed out, MINKS‘ debut album, By the Hedge, just came out” on Captured Tracks and the band celebrated on Friday, 1/21, at Glasslands with Big Troubles, Family Portrait and Widowspeak. Pictures and videos from that show are in this post. MINKS’ next show is with Abe Vigoda and Wild Nothing at Bowery Ballroom in February.

And to quote Bill again, “if you haven’t heard Big Troubles‘ debut, which came out early this year on Olde English Spelling Bee, I recommend you remedy that, especially if you have a fondness for early-’90s shoegaze. Big Troubles know their stuff, have digested it all and come up with their own appealing version.” Big Troubles’ next currently-advertised show is at Shea Stadium w/ Andrew Cedermark, Alex Bleeker & the Freaks, and White Laces on March 5th.

Jessica Amaya stopped by the show, mostly to check out new Captured Tracks signees Widowspeak, and she mentioned they “were pretty damn good”. Her pictures and videos from the whole show, continue below…
