MiniBoone/Sippy Cup Everything Showcase Info

Oh man, when am I ever going to learn to stop letting things linger in my inbox? About a week ago Mike from Sippy Cup Everything sent me a quick e-mail about a new track from MiniBoone from their forthcoming 7” & he tagged on some CMJ information as well. And, of course, I let it sit there and thought, I’ll definitely get to it soon. And then I went out and bought the new Marnie Stern album and listened to it over and over again all weekend long while Mike’s e-mail languished in my inbox.

Anyway, after tearing myself away from the Las Robertas album this morning, I decided to listen to the track Mike passed on to me so that I could at least post the CMJ showcase info in good conscience & whoa! It’s nearly six minutes long & not a second of those six minutes is boring.

“The Other Summer” is a high energy epic pop song — Mike compares it to Springsteen, Queen, & Andrew WK, & yeah, yes, all of those — but I also hear the good humored power pop of Pansy Division & the driving, sincere sound of J Church. This is a sleek six minutes — it doesn’t sound like anything else I’ve been asked to listen to or write about lately. If you’re a fan of frenzied pop ballads, you probably ought to listen to this (you can stream it here.) “The Other Summer” is the a-side of a forthcoming 7”, so keep your eye out for that.
