1 - ARNER, JAY - ARNER, JAY - (LP) 
MINT


For years, Vancouver multi-instrumentalist Jay Arner has teamed up with others to translate the sounds in his head. He's fronted an indie rock band, played synthesizers and samplers in a pop duo, manned the drums for a piano-punk songwriter, and held down the bass in a eight-member collective. Along the way, he's also become a sought-after producer and remix artist, working out of the legendary Hive studios and recording acts like Mount Eerie, Apollo Ghosts, Rose Melberg, No Gold and many more.Now, finally, he is going it alone. Every sound you hear on his eponymous debut album-due out this summer through Mint Records-was self-recorded by Arner in his 72-square-foot practice space using a precariously perched desktop computer and his home recording gear. The sum of his many talents, these 10 songs sizzle with DIY energy and encompass the scope of the songwriter's diverse resume.The lyrics are filled with self-doubt and wry cynicism, but don't expect confessional heartbreak-these timeless melodies and intricately wrought arrangements are filled with noisy pop sweetness, and there's not an acoustic guitar to be found.

3 - ARNER, JAY - JAY II - (CD) 
MINT


Jay Arner's 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.In his quest for self-discovery, Arner channeled inspirations ranging from the cheeky charm of Sparks to the regal slink of Roxy Music, the soaring hooks of Fleetwood Mac to the propulsive drive of La Dusseldorf. Jay II synthesizes glam, prog, and electronic funk into a shimmering 2016 pastiche. However, it goes beyond studied homage into the realm of relatable as only pure pop for now people can.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

5 - AWKWARD STAGE, THE - SLIMMING MIRRORS, FLATTERING LIGHTS - (CD) 
MINT


In our current cluttered musical climate, The Awkward Stage'ssophomore record is an audiophile's oasis where the band successfully combines clever lyrics and courageous arrangements into 12 brilliant and brutally honest pop gems. A refreshing record. It is a fragile yet triumphant record, and possesses a rare cohesive beauty. The Awkward Stage began as the recording project of multiinstrumentalist, Shane Nelken. You may remember Shane as one of Carl Newman's henchmen in The AC Newman Band, or from. The Awkward Stage also features Tygh Runyan (The Beans) on lead guitar, percussionist Tony Koelwyn (Bossanova), and Chris Mitchell (of the Vancouver Symphony) on trumpet. Tygh is also an accomplished actor and can also be spotted in Snakes on a Plane. Seriously!

9 - BUTTLESS CHAPS - LOVE THIS TIME - (CD) 
MINT


It's a common dilemma for any child of the 80s too old to play punk anymore; should I play alt-country or indie-rock synth-pop? Singer and frontman of the Buttless Chaps Dave Gowans fully recognizes that many would consider his band's self-described "electro-prog-country" baffling, if not absurd. Yet it's quite miraculous how seamlessly these Chaps can switch from banjo-laden country death dirges to Cold War synth songs.

The Buttless Chaps just recently celebrated their tenth anniversary as a band with a concert recorded and broadcast nationally in Canada on CBC Concerts on Demand. This is their sixth studio offering. Recorded at the Hive Studios by Jesse Gander, Cartography combines many elements of the Buttless Chaps ever changing sound.

Tracklisting: 1. Cartography, 2. The Opera, 3. Water by the Wayside, 4. When It's Cold Outside, 5. Broken Transit Broken Soil, 6. Are We Forgiven Now?, 7. Coal Grey Sky, 8. Total Amounts.

13 - DUMB - SEEING GREEN - (CD) 
MINT


DUMB is the new smart. Don't believe us? Look no further than this ridiculously prolific Vancouver quartet, who have somehow cracked the code on including quality with their quantity. Over the last two years, Dumb have self-released three albums of quirky, frenetic post-punk. While others might go stale, however, the band seems to break new ground with each new idea.Enter Seeing Green, the band's first full-length for Mint Records. The album's 14 tracks were produced by Jordan Koop (Wolf Parade, You Say Party, the Courtneys) While it's the band's first time working on this relatively larger scale, Koop's production has simply crystallized their ideas.The result is a batch of songs that sound both urgent and timeless, referencing classic post-punk projects like DEVO, Pylon or the Mekons while placing them nicely within the pantheon of Canadian contemporaries like Ought, Fountain and Freak Heat Waves.Musically, Seeing Green's jagged guitars and punchy rhythm section lay a perfect basis for their lyrics, all of which explore the inherent absurdity of modern life. As frontman Franco Rossino says, "The album revolves around a confused and angry young person unknowingly being tossed around by the same western capitalist conditioning that we've all been raised on." At times paranoid and other times exuberant, Seeing Green dares you to dance and deconstruct. It's a trim, explosive collection of songs.

19 - ENERGY SLIME - NEW DIMENSIONAL - (7") 
MINT


Alongside the starry-eyed synth-pop and minor-key melancholia of his self-titled debut, Vancouvers Jay Arner has mastered the art of deadpan absurdity. Oddball jokes and non-sequiturs linger around the edges of computer-animated music videos and sketchbook scribbles transformed into t-shirts. Now, joined by his partner in crime Jessica Delisle, these poker-faced put-ons have been conjured into a blob of pure sonic ectoplasm. Say hi to Energy Slime! New Dimensional is the duos primordial ooze, cramming ten songs into a jam-stacked thirteen minutes and two sides of a 7-inch. Like Robert Pollard in quick-hitter mode, or a circuit-fried Bruce Haack and Esther Nelson, the pair creates way-out musical miniatures. Energy Slimes enchanting earworms range from the fuzzed-out glam stomp of "Bustin Up" to the stately Eno pomp of "Mother Brother Sister Father." The breezy blue sky-ride of "Only Clouds" crash lands on the space cruise of "Star on the Ground," after a 34-second huff of "Gas in a Bag." Delisle grabs the mic for the shimmering Cyndi Lauper sock-hop of "Cool Ship II" while Arner shares his medical credentials with the feather-banged headbang of "Why U Wanna." Road trippin ramble-riffs follow "Trial of the Mind" onto the rattling trail of "So Long Snakes." And the crown-jeweled centerpiece is a lascivious tribute to one half of Stop Podcasting Yourself titled (natch) "Graham Fucks the Queen.".

22 - FAITH HEALER - COSMIC TROUBLES - (LP) 
MINT


Long before Jessica Jalbert began recording under the moniker Faith Healer, she fostered a tight collaborative friendship with fellow Edmonton-bred polymath Renny Wilson. They've made boppy garage rock in Tee-Tahs, kicked up a racket in Punk Explosion, and even played in a scattering of cover bands. In 2011, Wilson was a key contributor to Jalbert's solo album Brother Loyola. So when Jalbert set about creating her first album under the name Faith Healer, she naturally called on her old buddy to help out. Jalbert wrote this material while absorbing a steady diet of psychedelic rock from the '60s and '70s. This fixation translates into inventive songs that combine the sun-kissed sparkle of classic pop harmonies with head-swimming trippiness and a few forays into thundering fuzz.She and Wilson played all of the instruments themselves, with the latter also handling production duties. "He had a recording set-up in his parents' basement," Jalbert explains of the sessions. "His mom and dad cooked us dinner pretty much every time. It was very much a family affair." Wilson captured the songs using his vintage console, which - if rumours are to be believed - may have been used on some Doobie Brothers recordings back in the day. Cosmic Troubles captures the warmth of the Summer of Love along with an eclectic sense of anything-goes adventurousness.

23 - FAITH HEALER - TRY ;-) - (CD) 
MINT


When Edmonton's Jessica Jalbert first began performing solo under the name Faith Healer, the alias was her way of avoiding being pigeonholed as a singer-songwriter. Now, however, times have changed: Faith Healer has blossomed into a band, with singer-guitarist Jalbert joined by drummer/multi-instrumentalist Renny Wilson. The follow-up to 2015's Cosmic Troubles was largely recording during an intensive month-long session in September 2016 at Wilson's personal studio in Montreal. During the process, Jalbert rented a room in Wilson's house and the pair spent hours jamming and listening to bargain bin rock records in the basement."The last album had a lot of flowery '60s flourishes," Jalbert explains. "This time, we wanted to simplify it and just do some straight-ahead songs. Focus on the song itself rather than all of the production." The pop-rock arrangements are still overflowing with beautiful sonic details-from the Twin Peaks synths that enshroud "Sterling Silver" to the funky clavinet that's nestled within the paisley-patterned pop of "& Waiting"-but the instrumentation is stripped down enough that it can be faithfully recreated by a live band. Jalbert and Wilson were inspired by the garage-punk snarl of Wipers, the deadpan drama of Leonard Cohen's Death of a Ladies' Man, and the classic songwriting chops of Scott Walker and Elvis Costello.Balancing melancholy lyrics with playful moods, lush melodies with straightforward arrangements, Try ;-) is the sound of an introspective loner leaving her bedroom to make a rock record with her best bud. Forget what the bullies told you in middle school-there's nothing cooler than trying hard.

25 - FAKE TEARS - NIGHTSHIFTING - (LP) 
MINT


Clear seafoam green LP with download.Even before joining as Fake Tears, Larissa Loyva and Elisha May Rembold were already established singers and songwriters in their own right. The former has released two spectral albums under the name Kellarissa, has toured the world as a live member of Destroyer and How to Dress Well, and has played in past Mint Records acts P:ano and the Choir Practice; the latter leads the folk-rock band the Lost Lovers Brigade and is a member of Shimmering Stars. The pair first collaborated when Larissa joined the lineup of Lost Lovers, and they continued to hone their chemistry during a stint as backup vocalists in the funky local ensemble COOL TV.Their current project dates back to 2012, when Fake Tears began to carve out a new sound focused around haunting, buzzy synths and angelically soaring harmonies. The result is Nightshifting, a radiant collection of sparkling electro-pop that is simultaneously spooky and infectious, nocturnal and pop-friendly. Separately, Fake Tears have distinct and beautiful voices, but together, they seamlessly combine to make something that's even greater than the sum of its parts.

MINT


Fetherstonhaugh has taken her time with her own music, spending upwards of an entire year writing a song. Ever the patient perfectionist, the singer/songwriter has maintained and further honed her performance skills over the last five years by playing with Mint Records recording artists The Choir Practice and regularly with fanshaw. fanshaw is able to toe the line between accessible and adventurous. The warbles and fluctuations challenge you, but the sounds warm you even with only the minimal instrumental backing. The thing that helps her stand out? She can effortlessly switch from intimate quirky vocal delivery to a chanteuse with the vocal power to dominate a song as well.

28 - HEAVEN FOR REAL - KILL YOUR MEMORY - (LP) 
MINT


Heaven For Real has been fine-tuning their distinct approach to songwriting since 2012. Kill Your Memory, their Mint debut, is a collection of songs brimming with their idiosyncratic brand of maximalist pop music. Equally enamoured with undeniable melodic hooks as they are with unconventional sounds, Heaven For Real emerges as fully formed left-field masters with the unique ability to turn directions on a dime. Fraternal twin songwriters Mark and Scott Grundy (Quaker Parents / Monomyth), in tandem with rhythmic partners Cheryl Hann (Old and Weird / Picnicface) and Nathan Doucet (ex-Crosss), spent two years developing their personal musical language. The result of overnight sessions at their local studio (Echo Chamber Audio) and much tinkering out of their Halifax homes, Kill Your Memory marries poetic lyrical narratives with a special blend of experimental rock n roll. The album incorporates the adventurousness of jazz and nervous post-punk energy with ornamental touches of tape collage and electronics. Brian Eno would be proud. The album begins with "Subliminal," a perfect summation of the bands creative process. As the music trapezes effortlessly between harmony and dissonance, it mixes the inventive spirit of Os Mutantes and the child-like playfulness of the Elephant Six Collective. Throughout the song, the brothers spur each other on to greater heights as each tries to best the other, posing pointed questions as part of the endless march toward self-perfection. Title track "Kill Your Memory" serves as the records skeleton key. Nervy and lumbering guitar strides until the chorus demands the listener "Kill your memory / Or arm your memory." This dedication to the concept of utility allows Heaven For Real to make good on their namesake. Other lyrics explore physical and mental intertwining with a zen-like embrace of change. "Oasis Melting (Visitor on Vacation)," reminiscent of Wires 154, turns melting frost on a lamp into an illumination of lifes animating principles. Rollicking beats envision a path populated with wayward travelers in search of momentary homes ("Known Steps In Directions Unknown," "Hotel #55"), while ghosts of former selves and lovers brush up against their current counterparts ("Smooth Ops," "Hard Done By"). There are meditations on the intention of ones actions ("No One Knows Her," "Im Sick") and ultimately acceptance of those actions ("Misfire"). The ring modulators emulate these sudden shifts in perspective, tipping their hat to spiritual forebears Devo. Shades of Sparks progressive lean, Daniel Johnstons earnestness, and Built to Spills emotional gravitas mix elsewhere with the unflinching optimism of early Talking Heads. Excited but not hurried, Kill Your Memory is sure-footed music written to a quickened heartbeat in the throes of inspiration..

30 - HOT PANDA - HOW COME I'M DEAD? - (CD) 
MINT


The band wanted it to sound alive, spontaneous, lo-fi, and playful, in line with the vibrant quirkiness of similar records by Roxy Music, Brian Eno, Talking Heads, and The Flaming Lips. There are also lots of different 'slapped together' tidbits and half-songs, so it should not sound overproduced or over-rehearsed. You can tell the band just had fun writing these tunes, and that's the most honest thing about it. On How Come I'm Dead?, you'll find dreamy noise, circus freak dance numbers, heartbreaking country ballads with screeching metal guitar solos, lovely pop harmonies, psychadelic drones, and straight up pop/rock numbers. There is even a grindy techno song and a hip-hop track, which includes a bass scratch solo and enough f-bombs to earn them an adult content warning sticker.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Membership Fees (intro) 02. Evil Nature 03. Pools 04. Shoot Your Horse 05. Fuck Shit Up/hell Hey Hex 06. Start Making Sense 07. Poor Little Ambulance 08. Clever Fox 09. Mindlessnesslessness 10. 1995 11. Masculinity 12. The Ghost 13. Late Night Calling (outro)
