This is the fourth full-length album in Minta & The Brook Trout’s history. It’s the one with the smaller number of songs in it, and the one with the longest songs we ever played.

Demolition Derby, album art by Bernardo P. Carvalho

It’s the one with the least acoustic guitars and the most keyboards, the first without a single ukulele strum. It has a lot of stuff that made it to the final version all the way from my home demos, so I do love the fact that “demo” is part of its title.
