One Day When We Are Young

Emo is generally considered a youngun’s game, so kudos to Mineral for their longevity. The Texan band celebrate a quarter-century of mopery with One Day When We Are Young, which is either a record accompanied by a book or a book accompanied by a record. What's for sure is that you get two new tracks here - including the widescreen rocker ‘Aurora’ - and a tome that includes essays on Mineral’s legacy from members of Spoon, Jimmy Eat World and Get Up Kids.

The Power Of Failing

Mineral were one of the finer bands to come out of the 90’s US indie emo scene, and their power is all the greater for the fact that they only released two albums and then called it a day. The Power of Failing is the debut full-length, and it simultaneously anticipates and betters many emo bands yet to come. Reissued by Arena Rock Recording Company.


Erstwhile Texan emos Mineral are getting their two LPs reissued by the modestly-monikered Arena Rock Recording Company. 1998’s sophomore effort EndSerenading, a softer and more melodic record than predecessor The Power Of Falling, actually surfaced after the band had split. This collection of tunes tugged hard on the heartstrings back then and it's likely to do the same again now. The likes of American Football and Death Cab For Cutie certainly owe Mineral quite the debt.
