There's a new band in town, and they're not afraid to use leg warmers. Let me introduce you to Minden, a band that recently relocated here from Kansas City in June, and they've brought with them a fine new record. Exotic Cakes comes out next month, and it's a mellow-gold dance pop record, centered around strong songwriting and a wry sense of humor—evidenced in the spandex dream of their video, for "Gold Standard," above. If you like bearded men in body stockings, acoustic ceiling tile, or just plain sexy, this video is for you.
You can hear another track from Minden over on Bandcamp, as well as nab a glance at their album cover (it includes bush); Minden is already making great sounds, and we're happy to have them here. Get to know Minden in person at Exotic Cakes' release show at the Doug Fir on Thursday, September 13.
