Basemint are a four-piece garage rock band from the Pacific Northwest. Their “No Retro” 7″ is coming out on K Records’ International Pop Underground series, which has previously released titles by Built to Spill, Beat Happening, etc. “No Retro” isn’t exactly groundbreaking, but you could certainly do worse. Calvin Johnson guests on the b-side which is cool, but not exactly uncommon for K releases. Overall it’s catchy and fun and garagey so check it out. Hopefully a full length will come soon, but until then it looks like, “Basemint are scheduled to return to the Dub Narcotic Studio very soon to finish their second International Pop Underground 45, “Hail Mary”.”
