Show #134: Minute Details

Merry Christmas from all of us here at Indy In-Tune.  Now, as I know my listeners, I'm sure you're all probably out doing last-minute shopping right about now, but I figured I'd throw this one out on the feed anyway, just so you'll have something in your download queue from me on Christmas morning.  This episode features the unique stylings of Minute Details, who -- despite the fact that they've been around for years -- I first bumped into during the Battle of Birdy's last summer, and who have since been regular fixtures at that venue.  I quickly became a fan of the band, not just because they're fun guys to hang out with, but because they have that "quirky" indie pop meets classic rock sound that you can't quite put your finger on, and quickly leads to hours of debate among people with a vocabulary in music who want to name two or three bands who, when combined, might compare to them.

In honor of what was at the time their upcoming performance at Indy In-Tune's Podconcert #2, and owing to the fact that the band had only a limited selection of studio-recorded tracks available, the music for tonight's episode was recorded live in Studio B and streamed to the audience who was listening to Indy In-Tune Radio at the time.  They are admittedly of dubious quality.  As I had forgotten to ask them to bring direct boxes and a suitable mixer to accommodate all of the channels required, you can see from the picture above, recording was done entirely with two mics placed in the center of the room.  Up until now, four channels and five foot cables on the mics has worked fine for podcast recording.  Naturally, we will be looking to improve our capability to record full bands in the near future, as this looks like it's going to be a trend going forward.

Links referenced in the show:     

  • Minute Details can be found here Web Site | Facebook | ReverbNation
  • The music from tonight's episode is an uncharacteristic acoustic set from the band.  For a more representative feel, check out their web site for some live video work of them "plugged in."
  • Those of you who caught the live web simulcast actually got to see a bit of the behind the scenes stuff with the Studio B sets ... for the rest of you, here's a pano showing the "Talk Show" and "Bar" sets we discussed.  (Hey, there aren't many show notes this week, I had to come up with something to put here.)  
  • Bass player, Caleb Spicer, also plays in a very cool band called Pick Up Park.
  • There was an in joke going on (that was lost in edits) where Minute details was determined to mention The Grinning Man eight times during the show, as The Grinning Man mentioned them seven times the week before.
  • They are currently recording their first full album with Victor Jobe, Mark Anthony (of the band Cabin Pressure) at Eleven Studios.
  • Mark Anthony is not to be confused with Michael Anthony, formerly of the band Van Halen.

Solicitations and Submissions

Solicitations for blog posts can be made by sending and email to "blog -at- indyintune -dot- com" and should follow these guidelines:

  • Local (Indianapolis-based) acts always have priority.
  • Visisting acts playing a bill with one or more local acts are also considered.
  • We generally don't like to repeat content found on other sites. If your request already has a lot of coverage on other sites, it will be considered low-priority unless you can give us an exclusive angle.
  • For obvious reasons, we don't do solicited album reviews, though we do appreciate you letting us know when you have a new release. Consider coming in and talking about the album yourself live on the air or a podcast.
  • All of our staff writers are unpaid enthusiasts. All requests for blog posts are entirely at their descretion.
  • As such, they generally need a lot of lead-time to put something out -- we're talking weeks of lead time, not hours.
  • That said, individual authors have full authority to ignore the following guidelines and write whatever they want ... if you can convince them to.
  • In addition, feel free to write your own post and submit it for posting as a "guest blogger." Those almost always get accepted.
  • Finally, regional or national acts submitting without meeting the above guidelines are generally ignored. We're not trying to be dicks, but if you send us a generic form-letter with your press release, and it doesn't even remotely concern a local artist or event, then you're not part of our core focus.
