The New Minuit Album Is Rather Good

Postby Tama on Fri 31/Jul/09 6:35pm

I've got some time to kill so I'm sitting in my minivan listening to the latest Minuit album the Steamer's fairly decent surround sound setup. It's rather good (the album and the stereo.)

The album is called www.findmebeforeidiealonelydeath.com

Not as dancy as the two previous albums but it still has some pretty catchy pumping beats. Particularly the opening track "Wayho" and Ruth's voice is dreamy :love:

There's also more down beat and even some folksy stuff. It's the only CD I've got in the Steamer at the moment and it's growing on me with each replay which is a good sign.

For those of you who haven't seen/ heard Minuit check this out :music:

Just remember, you'll have more of a chance of finishing the race if you go straight home

Loving it a lot. After getting quite disillusioned by Guards Themselves, I'm feeling it for this one :love:

Does she still sing in a nasal whine? I can't get enough of that.

I met one of their DJ's at a house party a few weeks back. Nice guy, he let me drink his vodka and hit on his missus too.

I was at their album release gig at Sandwiches in Wellington last night. Everytime I see them live I come out going "wow". Ruth Carr has an awesome stage presence. and she's a babe <3

Love the new album - 25 bucks and Wayho! are awesome as and it went off last night. I'm also digging 'Long Live Zero' They played some old stuff too - Lock the doors, block the roads - probably one of my favourite tracks of theirs. Body-shaped box from their first album and of course Fuji for their encore.

I've been listening to this album quite a bit :music: and I can't work out what movie Ruth refers to in the lyrics for "Run Run"

I'm not so brave, i'm just surrounded by cowards, Run, run, he's reloading his gun. Run run.
My favourite bit, of the movie is when he says, "is that all ya got?", and she pulls out one more gun. And he says, "hey! i didnt know that you had that." And she says "well i may be down but i am not out", and she says "well i may be down but i am not out". We're not so brave, we're just surrounded by cowards.
He's on the floor, his body's broken and beaten. They stand him in a lineup and they told him to run and through the smoke, a rope pulls him up to safety, and she says, "i would never leave you here on your own", and she says, "i would never leave you here on all alone", and she says, "i would never leave you here on all alone".


Her description rings a bell but I can't work it out (yes I've tried Googling) and it's beginning to drive me slightly madder :huh:
