Song of the Day - May 4, 2006

Wow, Starlight Mints album Drowaton is full of great indie pop, one that you might hear on some great underground AM radio station, if such a thing existed. Their music has been labeled bubblegum psych by some critics. The Starlight Mints use a wide variety of instrumentation to create a rich sonic palette; everything from violins, church bells, synths, guitars, drums, and the rest of the usual suspects are thrown into the mix culminating in a luscious stew of musical treats. A few of the standout tracks include the almost folk-like "The Killer," the high energy, punctuated with electric guitars "Pearls," and the silly whistling chorus of "Tort." "Inside of Me" has hit written all over it. I love the intro with the piano glissando and the falsetto backing vocals during the chorus. Click here to listen.
