Starlight Mints :: “Submarine #3″


Everything about this song, from the crisp after-dinner zing of the band who brings it to us, to the heartswelling, immense, gorgeously elegant string section that starts it, to the pop confection that follows — it’s nearly perfect in every way that matters.

Submarine #3 – The Starlight Mints

Starlight Mints are from Norman, Oklahoma, and are signed to Barsuk Records. That tune is the first song on their first album, The Dream That Stuff Was Made Of (2000).

They have a new album out now called Change Remains, and a new Daytrotter session full of good free tunes to go along with it.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
