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!
