Review by Nolan Webb
This is not your average Mint release. Don't misunderstand: this Winnipeg duo are often fun, but they balance that with a moody sensibility. They're also not your average band, unleashing a fully dynamic six-piece sound in only a two-piece (bass and drums) format. Rod Slaughter's bass is provocative, his lyrics clever and catchy, while Sean Allum's dynamic drumming rounds out the mix.
The band's "Ba Ba Ba... " brand of pop shines through in "The Message" and "Follower of Obvious Voices," leaving a sound that is a kind of Sesame Street version of the Jam that plays in the same ballpark as Zumpano. Duotang takes us on a time warp to when entertainment and style were first priority. Their carefree fun will appeal to all but the darkest of listeners.
