A Magnate's Reach Kopie

any time anything related to guided by voices comes across my inbox, i have to listen. its a knee jerk reaction. most of the time, the shit sucks, honestly, in the case of mincer ray, the complete opposite is true. keep in mind im not sure they are gbv fans, but “mincer ray” is a gbv song. so, im just putting two and two together here. and just like that, i read their bio which was at the bottom of the email and there is the guided by voices reference. now that we have that cleared up, mincer ray’s soon to be released, 5.31, a magnate’s reach, is pure quirky pop bliss. i wish i heard more of this kind of stuff cause other than the “alt-country” or whatever you want to call it, jangly askewed, is that even a word, pop is my second go to type of music. these guys are from germany, but from what i gather there are two americans and one brazilian in the group. as it turns out you can actually purchase said ep for a name your price type of deal via their bandcamp site. this is really freaking good, definitely recommended!

    This is so good! Thanks for sharing. I agree about the AltCountry landscape lately. Although I love it, it has become really redundant and saturated. Especially now with every band trying to sound like Mumford! Give me a good pop song anytime. This stuff is wonderful. Heading to Bandcamp to buy it now.

    Yeah, there is music is pretty good, but have you seen how handsome they are? Goddamn.

  6. I bought both their albums on Bandcamp. Great stuff.
