Starlight Mints 


Starlight Mints
Not many bands sound so much like their name. Starlight Mints’ music is bright and sweet though it comes from a dark place. OK, it won’t freshen your breath. A seemingly ramshackle structure may raise memories of Pavement, before each song achieves a more hummable state. Strings of every thickness throb in concert with the drums to make the alarming instrumental “Rhino Stomp.” Keyboardist Marian Love Nunez and eccentric violins ride the rock with sense of adventure throughout Drowaton. “The Eyes of the Night,” with ghostly chorus and Farfisa organ, is playfully spooky. Orchestral backing need not muffle a music’s force. This is the proof.
