The Good Minus (album)

The Good Minus

The Good Minus will launch their debut album at The Wesley Anne, Northcote on October the 11th 2019 with Anna Cordell supporting.

Official album release date: 27/09/19. Pre-order the album now.

The Good Minus are an all-singing, instrument-swapping power trio. Their songs feature intricate three-part vocal harmonies with a style described as Grizzly Bear reimagining the songs of Elbow.

Matt Welch, David Kean and Stu Hazelman blend wildly different influences to create multi-layered arrangements, with obscure yet groove-laden time signatures.

Their debut album was recorded at Tender Trap Studios in Melbourne and engineered by David Kean. David also mixed many of the album’s tracks. The band had the honour of Greg J Walker (Machine Translations) mixing I’ll Decide For You and Rohan Sforcina (Head Gap Studios) mixing Blood Brothers, Shadow Love and Catch Us Up. Their record was mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Studios (NY).

"Rich with vocal harmonies and multi-layered arrangements, the release breathes new life into angular prog pop."

"(The Good Minus) have succeeded in creating a perfect indie song.”
- We Love That Sound

"Lush harmonies…. Johnny Greenwood/Radiohead-esque lead guitar parts.”

LYRICS:
Music will come in last
like Christmas, but in reverse
and this mechanical shark
he has no regard for the art

At the meeting I wait
the faculty race
standardised test
get in your place
a mean and a mode
what you value the most
are data and rank
pre and post

Chorus

The hierarchy's set
this is your stream
are you academic?
which side of your brain?
what's your result?
we'll test you again
but outside these walls
it won't matter to them

Music will come in last
like Christmas, but in reverse
and this mechanical shark
he has no regard for the art.
