Boltfish Recordings co-owner Mint presents an album of beautifully emotive tracks ranging from playful and cinematic to crunchy and beat-driven.

Tracks such as Grace and Dorothy’s Song combine warm electronic sounds and playful nursery rhyme melodies with intricate stuttering beats, while I Don’t Kvetch, Keiji’s Dream, Aquarius and Shoes Too Big for Her Feet frame the artist’s melodies within a heavier, more IDM and electro-inflected style, with euphoric synth lines, soaring string pads and crunchy drums.

Personal Spaces and Tricycle Days exhibit a more nostalgic bent through the use of vintage keyboard tones and evocative childlike melodies. System Cost and Dead Pixel are darker tracks with a brooding, melancholic feel. Musicbox Skit provides an exquisite interlude of chiming music box samples and vinyl crackle, and closing track Whispering Gallery explores a more cinematic, beatless side of Mint’s production style with a delicious slice of widescreen atmospheric ambience, gently floating strings, softly pulsing chords and arpeggios, and twinkling melodies. Also included is a remix of Shine by Ulrich Schnauss.
