todd1049 This is great shoegaze music, integrating both guitar and elecronic sounds at times. Choosing a favorite track was tough -- I went with Iteration, though White Noise and Translations easily could have the distinction as well. I hope Mint Julep releases all their material on Bandcamp, including the older recordings. Favorite track: Iteration.

Iteration is pure shoegaze delight and I should know, I was there the first time.
Stonkingly great album, think these guys could go all the way!
Buy it! Favorite track: Iteration.

Ben Harris If I had to pigeonhole this, imagine a hybrid of Her Space Holiday's "The Young Machines" and Nightmare of You's self-titled album, and that'll be reasonably apt description. Indeed if you were into melancholy pop of the early 2000's this record might be a welcome reminder of those days. Don't overlook this one! Favorite track: Vakaras.

about

Stray Fantasies marks a deepening of the discography of wife-and-husband duo Hollie and Keith Kenniff under their collaborative moniker Mint Julep, an expertly manicured electric-pop venture that stands in stark contrast to the nebulous and experimental Helios and Goldmund outputs for which the latter member is known (though both members have ambient projects under their own names). Where those projects seek to defy conventional songform through textural, amorphous exploration, Mint Julep gels all the elements with a surprising and impressive songwriting expertise that speaks to the skill and well-roundedness of its creators. Stray Fantasies further proves this by delivering twelve fully crystallized, iridescent pop pearls glimmering with the interplay of synthesizers, pulsing basslines, and punching drums that ballast Hollie’s oneiric singing as she unfurls themes of vulnerability, insecurity, and other aching minutiae of love and relationships.
