2. Mindy Stock (born Feb. 11, 1990) began playing music at a very young age, as her mother, a piano teacher, encouraged her to. She experimented with piano, trumpet, and drums, but did not find her instrumental niche until she picked up a guitar at 16. She record her first album, “Quick, before the rain gets in,” with help from a friend and his basement, under the name the Fragile Army. However, the Polyphonic Spree released their new album under the same title, and she new it was time to find a more suitable name.
Mindy moved into a mangy apartment full of unruly boys when she was just 17, and began to take her music more seriously. “Jelen a Zool,” was recorded in a 2 month period using extremely lo-fi recording equipment, a busted mic, and an allegedly stolen computor. The album has been described as melancholy girl-folk with casio-tone beats, and was only distributed to a local record shop and sold at the few shows that were played that year.
Jelen’s latest album, “Velvet Face,” is to be released in 2009 and has a more exotic, mature feel to it than its predecessor.
