Ghost Throats #5: Minuet - Three Song Demo

There used to be a lot of bands that would be classified as noodley (ie. Cap N’Jazz or Algernon Cadwallader) but the popularity of that style seems to have dwindled in the last little bit. However there is one great example of a band doing that sound in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Minuet, would be the first to note the Cap'n Jazz influence but they still have their own style. While maintaining the genres trademark guitar, Minuet really differentiates themselves by writing well crafted songs with great lyrics and vocals. It feels meaningful and honest...and that's really where the charm of Minuet comes. They play with so much heart and talent that you can't help but love them. The way Troy and Garret's vocals bounce off each other suits the band so well, and the drumming and bass just keep every song grooving along Always look forward to seeing these guys. (If you're interested, we've posted singer Troy's solo project in the past. Check it!)

Currently Minuet only has a three song demo, but they're in the early stages of recording another record, so keep your eyes peeled for that. You can catch Minuet at Ghost Throats June 1st in Edmonton.
