65 - PACK A.D., THE - FUNERAL MIXTAPE - (CD) 
MINT


Funeral Mixtape arrives hot on the heels of The Pack A.D.'s Mint Records debut Tintype. Recorded live off the floor to analog tape at The Hive Studios, Funeral Mixtape encapsulates the intensity and warmth of The Pack A.D.'s musical relationship. How can a duo generate such a massive sound? Becky Black's vocals have been compared to Janis Joplin, and the combined duo's live show to long established acts like The Black Keys. All comparison aside The Pack A.D. exhibits an ability to present the sound and vision of the blues in their own way: brooding, explosive, and unrestrained. Tracklisting: 1. Blackout2. Dont Have to Like You3. Making Gestures4. Shiny Things5. Oh Be Joyful6. Underground7. June8. Dannemora Blues9. Build10. Wolves and Werewolves11. Worried

66 - PICK A PIPER - PICK A PIPER - (LP) 
MINT


Though kept busy handling percussive duties in the live incarnation of Caribou, Torontos Brad Weber has found time in recent years for his side project, Pick a Piper, a collaboration with friends Clint Scrivener, Angus Fraser, Dan Roberts and others, that Weber oversees by handling the production and much of the songwriting. Between 2009 and 2010, they released two digital-only EPs, both of which filled out dance-music structures with decidedly non-dance-music instrumentation-glockenspiel, acoustic guitar and flute, to name a few-to create what they aptly term "organic dance music." In the years since Pick a Pipers initial releases, Weber has taken to flexing his production muscles, swapping out the acoustic palette that characterized earlier output in favor of found-sound samples, synths, electronic percussion and deftly sequenced helpings of reverb and delay. But even with this new focus on electronics, their aesthetic remains grounded in the natural world, with airy, polyrhythmic percussion, atmospheric sound design and loopy melodies making up the foundations of their self-titled debut album. Toss in a smattering of guest vocalists (members of the Ruby Suns, Enon / Brainiac, Born Ruffians and Braids), and Pick a Piper becomes a project whose stylistic versatility and distinct palette create a pleasantly varied but cohesive whole..

67 - RAMBLIN' AMBASSADORS - RAMBLE ON - (LP) 
MINT


180g vinyl with free download.The Ramblin' Ambassadors' third album for Mint Records proves again that the Canadian West is the true home of instrumental rock and roll. Serving up another platter of big beat, no bullshit guitar instrumentals, the boys from Calgary kick up way more turf than surf. Ramble On was recorded entirely in the band's secret underground bunker, under the tutelage of musical whiz-kid Russell Broom. This album strips the Ambassadors' sound even further back, with pretty much a single track for each instrument. (Well, the drums are in stereo, so that's a couple.) Ramble On follows the traditions of the Ambassadors' two previous Mint records, slamming home the fact that they remain, according to Exclaim Magazine, "one of the best instrumental acts around today."For fans of Huevos Rancheros, Southern Culture on the Skids, Reverend Horton Heat, The Sadies

68 - SUPERMOON - PLAYLAND - (7") 
MINT


The self-proclaimed gadabouts of moody pop are at it again! Supermoons latest excursion, Playland, bubbles with intelligent, weirdo songs that combine sunny riffs and distorted ring-outs. Coated in sugary vocals with driving bass, spectral guitars and marching drums, the songs of Supermoon wink at something lurking beneath the surface. Rising from the ashes of two former Vancouver bands-the garage rock outfit Movieland and jangle pop trio Pups-Supermoon recalls the best aspects from both groups on its catchy, challenging songs. Multi-instrumentalists Adrienne LaBelle and Alie Lynch take turns adding rich, dark bass and bright, sneering lead lines. Katie Gravestock, known as Groovestock to her bandmates, lives up to her nickname by supplying an endless supply of smooth, melodic riffs. Selina Crammond provides the backbone to the group with her playful drumbeats, reminiscent of the Flying Nun catalogue. As each of the members trade off on vocals and songwriting duties, the album is at once eclectic and cohesive. The interplay between the musicians is central to the groups sound as each instrument weaves in and out of the soundscape. Dueling guitar riffs, dynamic breakdowns, and responsive rhythms are all direct results of this reciprocity. The outcome of the bands close relationship can also be heard in the warmth that permeates the album. There is a distinct tenderness to their musicianship, even in its more ominous moments. Part hot fudge sundae, part film noir; prepare to be weirded out by the addictive and intricate novelty of Supermoons Playland. Who knows what darkness lurks in the hearts of men? Supermoon fucking knows..

69 - TOUGH AGE - I GET THE FEELING CENTRAL - (LP) 
MINT


If Tough Age's self-titled debut was the culmination of four radical adults, I Get The Feeling Central sees them busting outside of their comfort zone. Once again, this 12-song collection is built on the bedrock of scuzz pop-simultaneously sweet and ear-splittingly loud but these old dogs have dug deep and taught themselves some new tricks. From the thunderous glam-stomp of "Chutes & Ladders" to the ominous surf instrumental "Landau, Luckman, and Lake" to the self- dubbed "evil Donovan" psych-pop of "Castigation", it's a thrilling listen that zigs where you expect it to zag

70 - TOUGH AGE - SHAME - (LP) 
MINT


In the two years since Tough Age's sophomore LP, I Get The Feeling Central, the curmudgeonly comic book loving band have reinvented themselves. Founding members Jarrett Samson and Penny Clark relocated to Toronto from Vancouver, channelling their love of Flying Nun indie-pop into a new three-piece line-up with drummer Jesse Locke. Honing their econo jams on tours across North America and over the sea to Tokyo, the trio has re-emerged with a fresh set of songs that are simultaneously minimal, dynamically propulsive, and eerily experimental. Shame's first side is charged with fuzzy pop energy, from frenetic opener "Everyday Life" to the herky-jerky punctuations of "Piquant Frieze". On the b-side, Tough Age delve into their emotional honesty with the swooning "Pageantry" ("The biggest bummer of a song I've ever written, which is saying something" laughs Samson) and the powerfully contemplative title track, closing the album with extended surges of feedback. The band used very limited overdubs while trying to record as much live in the studio as possible.On Shame, the influence of New Zealand acts continues to loom large with Tough Age's tribute to The Clean on the slyly titled "Unclean." Less obvious inspirations include early '80s London, ON group The Hippies, the off-kilter drumming of U.S. Maple, and the austere lyr-icism of The Urinals' "punk haikus."

72 - TOUGH AGE - TOUGH AGE - (LP) 
MINT


Tough Age is culmination-rock. The sound of four radical Vancouver adults with shared decades of experience, chops and killer record collections coming together to create charismatic, idiosyncratic pop songs for the ages. For their stated sonic inspirations, the band is quick to whip off a laundry list of musical heroes. From lo-fi godfathers Guided By Voices to the New Zealand fuzz-pop of Toy Love, the Clean and Bird Nest Roys, they also dig deep into Canadian garage 45s of the '60s from names like the Townsmen, Jury and Ferraris of Canada. Heck, there might even be a dash of Tommy James and the Shondells, plus the cartoon bubblegum of the Archies, Groovie Ghoulies and Ohio Express. Yummy yummy!

74 - TOUGH AGE - UNCLEAN - (7") 
MINT


The new 7 inch EP from Toronto reluctant punks Tough Age is a manifesto, introducing fans to their new direction. Since relocating to Toronto from Vancouver three years ago the band has channelled their love of underground Flying Nun styled indie pop and have stripped down to a three-piece to facilitate efficient touring and writing. The single kicks off with two snappy tracks featuring bassist Penny Clark on vocals. "Guess Not" is a blistering blink-and-you'll-miss-it punker that sounds like an angry Shop Assistants song and is followed by "Not Bad" a swaggering piece of indie pop that mines the golden age of intelligent DIY indie pop. Guitarist Jarrett Samson rounds out the record with "Unclean," an ode to the classic kiwi pop of The Clean and Double Happys. The track builds up from a deceptively simple guitar line held together by the solid drumming of Jesse Locke until it reaches an unhinged surf rock crescendo.500 pressed on black vinyl

75 - VANCOUGAR - CANADIAN TUXEDO - (CD) 
MINT


Ten catchy, riff-tastic songs to sing along to. Recorded at JC/DC Studios by Dave Carswell (Tegan & Sara, New Pornographers, A.C. Newman, Bella). Megan Johnson's pulsing keyboards, Becca Stewart's driving bass and CC Rose's urgent drumming explode from the speakers, harkening back to the burgeoning mid 80s scene of Venice Beach, California. Eden Fineday belts out melodic lyrics which reflect upon the fragility of life itself, the struggle of relationships and remembering to live each day to the fullest. It's the sort of retro-garage pop that makes even the worst days seem a little better!

Two ecstatic meshes of indie rock and shoegaze noise follow with Late Springs "Drink You," from their 2015 debut, and an exclusive track from Ace Martens, "Hiding."

84 - WILSON, RENNY - PUNK EXPLOSION/ EXTENSION - (LP) 
MINT


Punk Explosion/Extension, or Punk Ex for short, is the latest musical detour from the loins of Canadian avant-pop artist Renny Wilson. Recorded between 2007 and 2014, Punk Ex follows Renny's natural progression from the breakup of his high school garage punk band, the Subatomics, in 2007 to his present-day life in Montral.Originally available in an extremely limited, abridged cassette version-simply titled Punk Explosion-the album was a collection of Renny's more abrasive recordings from the past seven years. Adding a handful of previously unreleased songs recorded at his home studio in Park Ex, Montral, in late 2014, Punk Explosion/Extension sees the original recordings back and bulkier than ever.Calling back to snotty '70s punk, cornball classic rock, and scratchy '90s garage punk, the album makes more than subtle hints at the past while painting a clear picture of the future. From the lighter fare of "Youngsters" and "Clean" to the cheeky cock-rock of "Stiffed", or the guttural, cartoonish power-pop of "Escaping Alive", Punk Ex offers a variety of leather jacket-bound jams to choose from, as you would expect from an album made over so many years.

85 - WILSON, RENNY - SUGARGLIDER - (CD) 
MINT


After almost a decade of struggle, strain and delay, the debut record from Edmontonian Renny Wilson sees the light. Sugarglider draws from disco keystones like "Bad Girls" and Arthur Russell as well as elements of chillwave, krautrock and a healthy dose of Haunted Graffiti, employing bold, tempo-matched digital delay. The album opens with a saxed-out, psychedelic, electric-bass-powered dance party, riddled with the sounds of late-80s FM synths, 12-bit horns and regret. The soul-plane flies high, low and back up again, fizzling away into a motorik opera, only to slap back with deep, white-boy funk, cosmic pulsar-pop and sampled-string schmaltz. The contrast of upbeat music and melancholy lyrical content provides a tasty combination for any groove-oriented listener. Tap this valiant freshman effort into your varicose and youll find yourself crying vaseline tears of self-pity on the dancefloor. "Um, best new band of the year? All weve heard is these three singles streaming from Edmontons Renny Wilson and we need more right away. Perhaps this record ranks with Ariel Pink himself. These three songs certainly suggest we have an incredible talent on our hands here." -Silent Shout.

87 - WOOLWORM - DESERVE TO DIE - (CD) 
MINT


Existential lyrics, loud-quiet-loud dynamics and emotive guitars might have some confusing Deserve to Die for another entry in the current emo revival. Don't get it twisted, however - Woolworm are a hardcore band who have decided to play pop music.Birthed from Vancouver's hardcore scene, the band have perfected peppy pop songs that simultaneously bear the crushing weight of being alive. On the surface, the music falls somewhere between vintage indie-pop like the Chameleons and fuzzed-out stadium alt-rock like the Smashing Pumpkins, but every once in a while they drop nods to aggressive influences like Integrity and Cold World. Thanks to their relentless touring and penchant for pop perfection, Woolworm have spent the last decade steadily growing a feverish fanbase. Their 2012 album Believe in Ourselves is an undeniable (if under heard) cult classic, and they've got a stack of singles and cassettes to prove that it wasn't a one-off fluke. With Deserve to Die, however, they've reached for something beyond themselves. With its hummable melodies and heady themes, Deserve to Die is a perfect late-summer record. You'll find yourself singing along in the sunshine, then you'll contemplate the tragedy that is human existence as the leaves begin to turn

On the surface, the music falls somewhere between vintage indie-pop like the Chameleons and fuzzed-out stadium alt-rock like the Smashing Pumpkins, but every once in a while they drop nods to aggressive influences like Integrity and Cold World. Thanks to their relentless touring and penchant for pop perfection, Woolworm have spent the last decade steadily growing a feverish fanbase. Their 2012 album Believe in Ourselves is an undeniable (if under heard) cult classic, and they've got a stack of singles and cassettes to prove that it wasn't a one-off fluke. With Deserve to Die, however, they've reached for something beyond themselves. With its hummable melodies and heady themes, Deserve to Die is a perfect late-summer record. You'll find yourself singing along in the sunshine, then you'll contemplate the tragedy that is human existence as the leaves begin to turn

90 - YOUNG AND SEXY - THE ARC - (CD) 
MINT


With the release of their fourth record, The Arc, Young And Sexy find themselves entering their 10th year as a band. Evidence shows that throughout the course of pop music history it can be challenging for an act to continue to inspire one another during the song writing process. However, this is not so with Young and Sexy as each record continues to evolve. The Arc is full of classical, baroque pop and prog rock influences. Songs move from one movement to another cradling lyrics that focus on medieval and pagan imagery and a touch of spiritualism. The band that released Stand Up For Your Mother (their Mint Records Debut) has now moved into dark and mysterious passages such as, "The wick is lit, unsettling shadows play. The rhythm beats wild and we dance. Now mix the elixir." (From "The Demon Dreaming").
