Here’s what the Owl Mag has to say about it:
The Stripminers was born out of a Sugar Knives music video casting of Brett Anderson, vocalist for The Donnas, and Paul Stinson of the punk band The Radishes. The two musicians got to talking, writing and recording, and formed the newest duo that stands up to other powerhouse guy/girl pairings like John Doe and Exene Cervenka (X) and Jamie Hince and Alison Mossheart (The Kills). Their debut album, Movies, is packed with kick-arse, high energy tunes that get your heart racing from the first raucous chords.
What is most striking about this album is how varied the tracks are, yet they come together seamlessly to school the listener in all that’s awesome in punk, alt-country, and garage rock. We are treated to fast and furious punk-laced songs like “Unnatural Lovers” and “No Luck,” then drift over to the sultry alt-country vibe of “Better Than A Song” and “Poison in the Paint” that is reminiscent of the recent collaboration between Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan. By the time you reach the title track, Movies leaves you completely spent, but with just enough energy to move your finger and tap “Repeat.”
THE BAND WILL ALSO BE SELLING AND SIGNING COPIES AT ALL OF THEIR UPCOMING SHOWS. Visit the Upcoming Shows page for details!

We briefly interrupt our normal programming to bring you a special, live video of “No Luck” from our show at Pappy & Harriets Pioneertown Palace on January 7, 2012. This was shot with one camera by our lovely and talented photographer Elizabeth Sloan using Paul’s Canon Vixia. Not bad for a *relatively* cheapo camera!
“No Luck” was our very first single, released early in 2011, and will also appear on our forthcoming full-length debut album “Movies.”

And we hear there just may be a full-length Stripminers album soon . . . . shhhh!
“Equal parts punk and Americana, The Stripminers create resolute anti-folk with male-female harmonies and an undeniable amount of raw energy.”

“Sunset Junction time again and not a minute too soon! Ok I’ve only ever been once, but it counted for at least 1.5/2 for sure, we really made that place our …own.
I performed with my band The Donnas, it was our first show in a long time because we were in the middle of recording at Conway studios, where days and weeks mingle and breed to create a time no clock can mess with.
Anyway, I remember the sound was crazy on stage, and I was in studio mode, ie no sun, no lights, no witnesses, so the mic stand felt like a Boa Constrictor in my grip and the audience looked like a jury. Sure enough that feeling disappeared as soon as the blurry faces became clear and I remembered that we were amongst friends and family. The show took on a life of it’s own ending in a chant “Back to the mansion! Back to the mansion!” which was a fav joke of ours at the time.
My hope for this year is we’ll skip straight to the ‘show taking on a life of it’s own’ part, and that I’ll acquire a mansion, or the use of a mansion between now and August 27th. I have faith in the individuals, I have trust in the whole, and I have hope for the unknown factors that toy with our temperaments daily! Let’s make it gOOd!!” – Brett
