Countrypolitan sure feels like it was tailor-made for me. Mink's Miracle Medicine blends '90s jangle rock with country and pop to deliver the most delicious melancholy bites. "Why Does Everyone?" captures what I imagine small-own ennui to feel like. (Though to be fair, Harper's Ferry is a pretty fascinating small town to be from.)
But the duo shines brightest with their plaintive country-heavy songs. It's easy to imagine these songs being picked over in a box car hurtling over a lonely stretch of plains. Countrypolitan might not be the cure for what ails your breaking heart, but it certainly does a body good to know that others are ailing too.
