Mint Royale feat. Lauren Laverne
Released: 24th January 2000.
Buy this record. Do it now. I don't care what else you need the money for, for heaven's sake BUY THIS RECORD. Lauren Laverne is one of the best things in pop at the moment and it's about time she got even a tenth of the recognition she deserves! "Don't Falter" is heaven to listen to, sublime and supple lyrics over a wonderfully addictive tune. GET IT. GET IT NOW!
After the demise of Kenickie, it's great to finally hear the dulcet tones of the wonderful Miss Laverne once again. For her return, she's teamed up with Mint Royale, best known for their superb remix of Terrorvision's "Tequila" last year. It's very much a case of returning the favour, following Mint Royale's previous production efforts with Kenickie, and the result is an interesting indie-pop crossover.
