The Stolen Minks
These punkabilly idols inspire hipsters to drop the facade and bust a move already---how can you not with songs about Charles (motherlovin’) Bronson?---and take the inagural nod for Best Local Band to Dance To. And props to Ben Jeddrie for the fab, popular animated clip for “Boys on the Floor,” from the Minks’ self-titled EP, that sees the quartet kicking ass and rocking out. Without a single cent, we might add, from FACTOR.
