"There's a new band in town, and they're not afraid to use leg warmers. Let me introduce you to Minden, a band that recently relocated here from Kansas City in June, and they've brought with them a fine new record. Exotic Cakes comes out next month, and it's a mellow-gold dance pop record, centered around strong songwriting and a wry sense of humor--evidenced in the spandex dream of their video, for "Gold Standard," above. If you like bearded men in body stockings, acoustic ceiling tile, or just plain sexy, this video is for you." - Portland Mercury

Yourself And The Air are three friends who've recently relocated from Chicago to Portland. They've toured a majority of the U.S. and parts of Canada crammed in a van, lugging their own gear, sleeping outside, crashing on fans' floors, cooking pasta for pals, hopping hotel fences to swim in pools, drawing on the walls of bathroom stalls. They've played with the likes of El Ten Eleven, Chairlift, El Perro Del Mar, Peter Bjorn And John and Portugal. The Man, among other artists.
