Mint Biscuit: A Trip Outside

Guitarist Richard Thomas' latest release of his one-man project Mint Biscuit is a work-in-progress. A Trip Outside features reworked versions - most them with his vocals this time - from his back catalogue. Singing and playing at the same is an art. He will have to make a few more steps to get it right, but it is nice to hear him taking a stand in If I Was A Lonely Goatherd, enjoying life with Summer Song, and issue a fair warning of the arrival of foul weather in North-Easter.

Yes, he does strays off pitch every now and then, but there is nothing wrong with his lyrical skills. Play No Blankets Required to a long time Phish fan and he will think it is brand new Mike Gordon solo tune.

A Trip Outside is an EP for now. More songs will be added to make it a full album. Buy it from his website.

Tracks:
  1. Dawn Chorus Steel City
  2. Summer Song
  3. If I Was A Lonely Goatherd
  4. North-Easter
  5. No Blankets Required
