Each week, I will be featuring an unsigned/independent artist that I discovered on Soundcloud. I will play a song from them during the new music hour at 8:30 on my show that week, and will write a bit more about them here.
Mint Julep is a husband and wife duo out of Portland, OR that consists of vocalist Hollie Kenniff and multi-instrumentalist Keith Kenniff. They play a mix of shoegaze and dream pop with electronic elements, reminiscent of artists like Still Corners, Twin Sister, Tamaryn and Washed Out. Their most recent release is 2011's Save Your Season, but will be releasing a new EP, Broken Devotion, later this year.
Here is their latest track, "Soon the Sea", along with a couple tracks from Save Your Season.
