We've posted on France's Mina Tindle a few times before, and after hearing this new demo, I think it's about time for us to accept that she's going to be a long-time favorite around here. Mina's music possesses the kind of inherent timeless quality (along the same lines as Sparrow House) that we predict indie-film music supervisors will be all over; it's the kind of song that can turn a scene into an instant classic. It's worth noting that Mina's influences include Feist, Regina Spektor, and Billie Holiday, because on this song, she makes like a lo-fi combination of the three.
