Gabriel Mintz is an anomaly. A unique and wholly singular artistic entity; Gabe is simultaneously known far and wide yet is still a mystery to many. His musical output, like his visual art, is a document of personal experiences translated through the hands of a person who has honed their craft with patience and intent. His work resonates in that place in the heart that knows everything is going to go away and that it would be best to hold on to the moment as much as possible.
In Safety [FIN-LE7-023] marks Gabriel’s vinyl debut as a solo artist. The two songs, “Western Days” and “Smunk” were written and recorded by Mintz in Bethesda MD in a small basement room. Gabe played each instrument and overdubbed each part piece by piece. After he completed the recordings he left that basement, packed up his belongings and drove to the West Coast. The moment had passed, it had moved on. Mixed by Steve Fisk (Unwound, Nirvana, Screaming Trees, Pigeonhed) the two tracks are presented in limited edition for the sensitive listener to tune in to and not just hear but feel.
