Minuit Ė Find Me Before I Die A Lonely Death Dot Com album review.
03 Aug 2009 // A review by JohnS
I have been eagerly awaiting 'Find Me Before I Die A Lonely Death Dot Com'
the new album from Minuit, by wearing thin my copy of their 2003 album 'The 88'
it wonít be long until this album turns out to get the same overuse. Minuit
have always caught my attention with the unique sound from vocalist Ruth Carr bleeding out from my speakers.
With catchy tunes such as '25 bucks' (which has to be my current favourite from the album) and blood pumping 'Yeah Yeah' and if your more balled inclined there is a lil acoustic ditty titled 'Vampires', either way you get a guaranteed treat with this album. After playing all over the world and even with The Crystal Method in LA, they still remain kiwi as with even a track entitled 'Aotearoa'. You cannot get more kiwi than that eh.
I would class this as move of a Spring/Summer album to put on in the weekend a chill to rather than your usual get ready to go out CD. I canít wait for their current tour to hit town as I definitely be on my way. Not all in my house like the album but it hit home with me. Top marks, itís great to see NZ talent coming out in an album such as this.
Minuit are finally touring the country again after being abroad for so long, Please get out there and support some kiwiana as they will be off again before we know it. Donít miss out!!!!
Minuit has a heart. And it beats loud. Real loud.

Having toured their synths and samplers from Hanoi to Helsinki on the live circuit for over a decade, this trio have crafted their own energetic sound Ė and it's refreshingly different.
Out front, the enigmatic Ruth Carr mixes sinister with salvation in a jubilant cascade of lyrics, while bandmates Ryan Beehre and Paul Dodge forge their rib-rattling, hip-shaking beats around her.
