Mink Lungs – I’ll Take It

Brooklyn psych-pop pundits follow-up last year's The Better Button

Trending Now

Arena Rock are currently reviving US indie with a slew of rainbow-hued rock groups, and the label’s loopiest hopefuls are Mink Lungs. This experimental psych-pop quartet merge post-punk guitars with growled cartoon vocals on this, their second album. “Men In Belted Sweaters” is joyous punk frippery while “Sad Song Of Birds” moves into mock-mournful, country-inspired territory. The result is as eccentric as an Edward Lear illustration.

But without the strong melodies or metaphysical beauty of The Flaming Lips, it borders on being novelty rock.
