Overview

Since first earning notice for launching the career of cuddlecore icons Cub, Vancouver-based Mint Records has combed the local music scene to quietly but consistently build one of the most rewarding catalogs and rosters on the contemporary indie scene, finally gaining widespread acclaim in 2000 with arguably its best record to date, the New Pornographers' pop masterpiece, Mass Romantic. The well-timed Team Mint, Vol. 2 compiles 23 tracks from the label's current roster, which ranges from the torch-and-twang of roots chanteuse Neko Case ("Furnace Room Lullaby") to the eccentric electro-pop of I Am Spoonbender ("Replaced by Toys") to the Sleater-Kinney-inspired grrrl-punk of Operation Makeout ("You and Me Geometry"). The real find is the largely unheralded Carolyn Mark, Case's partner in the Corn Sisters ("She's Leaving Town") and a stunning country balladeer in her own right. Vancouver rocks.
