Summer Fun From Mint Julep

Nice little surprise out of ATH IT Department favorite Mint Julep, this was teased and then posted over on their Bookface page. I’ll let ehm do the intro…

While writing our forthcoming album, “Broken Devotion”, Hollie and I took a bit of a detour to write this song for fun and welcome in the summer. We are offering it as a free download. Hope you enjoy it!

It is a freebie download and way better than anything on the alleged album of the summer (RAM sucks). “Soon The Sea” has a very Stars-y feel to it and will be in heavy rotation.

The IT Department – v2.2

SxSW is getting closer and closer and this IT Dept. has very little to do with SxSW becasue it is still too far away for me to start getting hyped. O_o

Since we played catch-up in the previous IT post, here is a collection of new tunes for you to ponder. I am throwing out a favorite from Mint Julep, the latest from Bear In Heaven, smoothness with oOoOO, School of Seven Bells minus a twin and an atmospheric closer from Blondes.

Click past the break and you might get rewarded with cheese.
