What Makes It Go?
Seek this out. It’s Minty Fresh all right. Think, people. Here is a band that has opened for Ben Folds Five and Beck. They’re Swedish and therefore have been compared to Abba. MTV shows their videos and they actually have a definitive and unique pop persona. Each track is a journey that begins, meanders, changes course, turns back on itself, flips over and plays anything but dead. Lena Karlsson’s glossy Karen Carpenter-style vocal sincerity sets a nostalgic tone and all the world needs now is love sweet love. Minty Fresh, P.O. Box 577400, Chicago, IL 60657
