Hailing from Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia, Mink’s Miracle Medicine is primarily the brainchild of Melissa Wright and Daniel Zezeski. Melissa approaches music with her background in Americana and formal training from Berklee College of Music, while Daniel comes at things from a punk and ska band experience. Their upcoming album, House Of Candles, has a number of songs with a Shovels & Rope vibe, featuring Melissa on vocals and guitar, and Daniel on drums and vocals. It’s a stripped down sound that takes an occasional side trip into a delightful, thunderous, grinding electric space, like on The Rift, which Twangville is pleased to premiere here. Turn this one up, it sounds better at 11.
