Mint 400 Records Presents: Patchwork
Various Artists
Mint 400
ADDS 9/9/14

Mint 400 Records does not represent the typical label. A label built for the technology age where as most of our artists record their records right at home in their basements and bedrooms. This compilation shows the wide range of the Mint 400 roster as bands like Yes Sunshine, Shallows & Cropduster offer up loud rock and on the other end of the spectrum is mellow delicate songs from The Duke Of Norfolk, Dave Charles & The Maravines. You can hear everything from throwback 60’s style songs from artists like The One And Nines & Jack Skuller or the shoegaze fuzz of Sink Tapes and The Smith’s like Poppy’s Field. Mint 400 Records has always been about one thing, good songwriting. We hope you enjoy this compilation from our new and old artists of previously unreleased material.
