Happy New Year!  As Minsk has made our way back into the woodshed and continue to cultivate our next contribution, we’ll be looking back at these past few amazing years.  Much to be grateful for as we close out 2017 and turn a page.

Join us as we reflect on some of our favorite memories of the creation, release, and support of The Crash & The Draw.

The Crash & The Draw Cassette Released

•October 13, 2016 • Leave a Comment

Minsk is very proud to present the official limited edition cassette release of our 2015 release “The Crash & The Draw,” via Three Moons Records.


As described by the label itself:

Dark blue tape housed in decorative cobalt blue die cut cardboard case.

Letterpress printing with pantone silver enriched by golden foil.

Includes lyrics printed on pale blue carbonpaper. All sealed with wax in stamped linen bag.

Limited to 81 hand numbered copies.  

* When we began discussing the possibility of a tape release with our friend, Maciek Sekowski, several months ago, we could not have possibly fathomed how special these would turn out to be in the end.

To order a copy, visit the Three Moons Records webstore at:

* And to see a full galley of photos of the release and an inside look at the production process, visit Three Moons Records Facebook page.

** Additionally, Minsk and Three Moons Records would like to thank Richard Postma of Tartarus Records.  Without Richard’s previous creative, diligent, and inspiring work with Tartarus lighting the way, a release this special could not have been possible.

European Gratitude

No words. Only five hearts filled with dizzying levels of gratitude. To the exceptional humans of Kowloon Walled City for sharing the voyage and the stage every night, to Avocado Booking for making it happen, and to everyone who booked a show, bought a ticket, snapped a photo, cooked a meal, shared an evening… undying thanks and love from the Minsk tribe. Again soon, please!
