"Jay II" Coming Soon From Jay Arner!!

March 21, 2016

Hello! We’ve been holding back our excitement, but now we finally get to announce the latest addition to the Mint catalogue: Jay II.

Jay II is music for outsiders who might not want to be insiders. Sophisticated synth-pop for sensitive types or existential glam-rock for the unsettled. These songs are the soundtrack to fitting in, finding your place in the world of suffering, and finally coming to terms with yourself.

Like the first album, Arner played most instruments alongside Jessica Delisle, his partner in Energy Slime. Tone zoned guitars, sci-fi synths, and muscular drum fills buff up the understated arrangements like a six-pack revealed under a sweater vest. Recorded and mixed in the span of a month with minimal fuss, these nine songs sound both airtight and breezy.

Don’t sleep on the vinyl either because every record collection needs that album art in its full 12" glory. LP, CD, and digital versions will be available June 17, but you can pre-order it here now!
