The Trick Is Not Minding
Some bands slap themselves together in a reckless summer night; constructed with excitement and spontaneity and the sort of sweat that drips in cluttered basements, they are often appreciated more for their abandon than their magnitude. But then there are bands like Orlando, FL's Henrietta, who somehow manage to bottle the sparkle of their inception and nurture it into something that burns both brighter and longer-an inferno compared to a firecracker. Henrietta is powerful because they chose to perfect their art, to kindle a forceful fire, rather than light the fuse and smile at the bang it made. Six years in the making, The Trick Is Not Minding is well worth the wait. 180 gram white vinyl with download card.
