The Curiously Strong Peppermints


The Curiously Strong Peppermints are a Minneapolis-based psychedelic acid-pop quintet. Their bio claims they sound like "Elliott Smith backed by The Flaming Lips playing The Beatles backwards," but that was written under suspicious circumstances involving a ferret, two buckets and a typewriter. What else is 'known' about the band may not be true: demos recorded from inside a box, using shoehorns and eggbeaters; concept albums about Lady Gaga's left testicle; pianos drenched in gallons of peach yogurt.

The Curiously Strong Peppermints are a Minneapolis-based psychedelic acid-pop quintet. Their bio claims they sound like "Elliott Smith backed by The Flaming Lips playing The Beatles backwards," but that was written under suspicious circumstances involving a ferret, two buckets and a typewriter. What else is 'known' about the band may not be true: demos recorded from inside a box, using shoehorns and eggbeaters; concept albums about Lady Gaga's left testicle; pianos drenched in gallons of peach yogurt. Are there actually seventeen members of the band, but twelve of them play nothing and simply perform pantomime at their homes while the remaining five perform/record the music at a gig or studio? The Curiously Strong Peppermints announce the release of their second album, ECHOES FROM THE ULTRAVIOLET FUZZ.

Although it picks up right where their debut album left off, it is more cohesive and band-oriented and features a wider sonic range. ECHOES is a concept album organized into three Acts and examines the rise and fall of Anna Livia Plurabelle and The Inverted Why, their disillusionment at the hands of The Synthetic Grin, The Inverted Why's isolation and his eventual redemption in The Ultraviolet Fuzz. The album is full of hooky melodies, abstract lyrics, oddball instrumentation and of course lots of noisy guitars. The Curiously Strong Peppermints are currently performing live in the Midwest to support the album.
