Good News

1LP
$14.98
Vinyl LP pressing. Minor Poet's second album, The Good News, is a six-song collection that expands the boundaries of what constitutes the band's sound. In just twenty-two minutes, the songs take apart the standard formulas of guitar-based rock and infuse them with vibrance and energy. On opener "Tabula Rasa, interlocking guitars and a Farfisa organ carry the song through until everything drops suddenly into a doo-wop section that wouldn't be out of place on a 1950's greatest hits compilation. Warped noise envelops a tropicalia-flavored Casio beat in "Tropic of Cancer" before a slick groove and sliding bass line lead into the chorus' pure pop bliss of of horns and vocal harmonies. "Museum District" begins with a drum intro reminiscent of an off-kilter "Be My Baby," and "Bit Your Tongue/All Alone Now" features a midsection with a glam-rock guitar solo amidst trumpet fanfare. These are a just a few of the infectious moments on an EP filled with many more.
