The Minks offer up a distinctly Nashville sound on "Sweet Talk"

Sweet Talk, the first recordings released by The Minks (featuring local everywhereman and Deli favorite Ron Gallo), is a mixture of styles that both makes sense and works pretty damn well. The distinctly Nashville pair of songs on the EP bring together the city's two dominant styles at the moment—there's the bluesy country side we all know so well, but it's balanced out by the extra-fuzzy garage psych that's gotten a reputation for itself in the past few years. There's no hint of trying too hard to make a statement or anything like that; it comes off as a natural result of the band's surroundings, whittled down into song form by incredibly capable hands. -Austin Phy
