Vinyl LP pressing. Closet Mix are minimalists. Or maybe they're lazy. It's hard to know for sure. They definitely don't do too much. They've been together for years, but have just now gotten around to releasing their debut five-song EP. They play, on average, one or two shows per year. They move at their own pace, which, it will surprise no-one, could be described as glacial. Their musical approach is deliberate, simple and straight-forward. They like good songs, first and foremost. They believe that the open space in their sound is just as important as what they play and sing. They like a lot of bands and records both new and old, but keep coming back to unadorned masterpieces such as the Velvet's third LP, from whence their name derives. Closet Mix are not young, ranging in age from their late-40s to mid-50s. They've been in a lot of bands over the last thirty years, including but not limited to Great Plains, Log, Peck of Snide, Househearts, and Vena Cava. They proudly call Columbus, Ohio their home. It would be romantic to think of them as survivors, but in reality, they're just stubborn mid-westerners who refuse to stop making music.
