Min Diesel - Mince LP STRUGG036
Struggletown in association with AlbTwo Records & Cool Yr Jets present the debut LP from Aberdeen based alt-rock trio Min Diesel.
The three-piece originally hail from various locales across the north-east of Scotland but are based in Aberdeen, where they are very much at the centre of the burgeoning local music scene. Having played
alongside bands such as Joan of Arc, Johnny Foreigner, Playlounge and Tuff Love in the Granite City, the band's regular appearances outside their hometown culminated in a full UK tour in 2013. The year after was spent cherry-picking, refining and recording the best songs from their extensive back-catalogue.
While some of the band's influences are immediately clear upon hearing their music, they are forged together in such a unique way that it is challenging to define the sound of mindie-rock with specific external references. DIY magazine attempted to pin it down as "a crashing, beautiful noise that fits somewhere between Dinosaur jr. and Stapleton".
Fans of Archers of Loaf & The Minutemen will love this record.
