Current favourite track: “19” by Meenk

19_meenk

Providence/Texan musician Meenk (aka May Rio) does lo-fi slacker rock extremely well. Her four-track EP Scamu Scau (June 25th, self-released) draws immediate comparisons to Palehound – no surprise since Palehound’s guitarist, Ben Scherer, helped to record it. May just graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design specializing in alternative menswear, and her final thesis was a capsule collection inspired by Jughead (!!!!) This girl is rad.

I drink half a beer and I’m only 19. I’m sorry for putting you all in such danger. Those cops, they’re just helping us out, they’re not mean. 

These lyrics take me back to before I had crows feet and body dysmorphic disorder.

I also dig Happiness Forgets. You can really hear the comparisons to Ellen Kempner in this one. Meenk is going to blow up big time, you just wait.
