Song of the Day - June 19, 2006

Minmae has released another artful album in Le Grand Essor De La Maison Du Monstre, which translates as The Great Flight of the Monster Haus. Their latest incarnation combines elements of freak folk with touches of Sonic Youth. One of the more quiet and introspective tunes on the album is "Once Cocked Gun." The solo acoustic guitar is augmented by the lonesome vocals of Sean Brooks, before the rest of the band joins in briefly. The sparse arrangement only further strengthens the appeal of the song, which would be lost with a lush instrumentation; sometimes simple is best. Click here to listen.
