It’s funny to pretend that the continuing ascent of modern goth music is a rebuff to the ubiquitous beachiness of indie music in ‘09 and beyond. It’s probably just the cyclical nature of musical influences going in and out of vogue, but there’s been great mopery lately, either way. Brooklyn’s Minks have the black-jeans-everyday aesthetic down pat on “Funeral Song,” the A-side of their debut 7”, though you don’t have to be a creature of the night to get behind its “so long summer time” mantra in this humidity. The upfront, vintage Cure bass line is probably what caught the ear of Captured Tracks boss Mike Sniper. He’s always smuggling those into his own Blank Dogs work. “Drunk Punks” is the flatter B-side, but it does ably evoke having the booze spins.
