There are so many great pop labels around these days itâ€™s becoming difficult to keep track of â€˜em all. The good news is that there are several viable forces you can always count on to release great music. I am, of course, thinking of my all-time favorite label, Labrador Records. But in the case of Ezra Furman & The Harpoons (MySpace), that label is Minty Fresh; for you pop fans out there, this is definitely a label with which to make an acquaintance.
Furmanâ€™s latest endeavor is Inside The Human Body. His music is a mash-up of garage and folk and pop, as can be heard on the single â€œWe Should Fightâ€. Itâ€™s catchy in all the right ways, has a massive punch of poppy jangle guitar distortion, and, of course, Furmanâ€™s classic vocals. He comes off sounding slightly like a more toned Alec Ounsworth, but that comparison can sometimes be a stretch.
Inside The Human Body is out now on Minty Fresh Records. Below you can check out the first single from the album, “We Can Fight”. It’s a great one!
