The Minor Leagues are back with their latest single - 'The Tastemakers' - available today as a free digital download. The Cincinnati six-piece began 2012 with the release of its sixth album, 'North College Hill', an album-long love letter to the memories of childhood. The band now turns its attention to another Cincinnati neighborhood, Northside, for its seventh full-length release (due on Datawaslost this winter) as they celebrate and bemoan the realities of adulthood and life in the Cincinnati music scene with their typical sense of humor and songcraft.
This single sheds light a brasher, more up-tempo side of The Minor Leagues, taking inspiration from classic garage/psych 7-inches, filtered through Blur and sixties French icon Jacques Dutronc. 'The Tastemakers' and its accompanying track 'Words Are Not Deeds' illustrate this shift in musical focus, rambling through snapshots of a night out in Northside in two-minute spitfire pop-song fashion.
