Stream It From The Mountains: Mini Meltdowns – Destined For Disaster

Mini Meltdowns is an emerging garage-punk band led by Nashville-by-way-of-Milwaukee drummer Jonny Phillip, an in demand session player who has played for The Benjamins, Limbeck, Berwanger, Trapper Scheopp, Tommy Stinson, and Paul Collins over the years.  In addition to drumming for Mini Meltdowns, Phillip writes, sings and plays guitar and is joined by former Promise Ring and current Dashboard Confessional bassist, Scott Schoenbeck.  Their second EP titled, Destined For Disaster is out now on Jonny’s Good Land Records.  It was produced and mixed by Mike Kennerty of The All-American Rejects, who also contributes lead guitar and backing vocals.     
Led by the first single, “I Wanna Die” with its propulsive yet staggering guitar riff, blissful Beach Boys-like harmonies and hopeful resignation; the 4-song EP balances Phillip’s struggles with depression, anxiety and the loss of his father with bouncy power-pop and classic punk-informed garage rock and infectiously catchy melodies. 
Jonny Phillip stepped out from behind the drums and into the spotlight to lead his first band last year with Mini Meltdowns’ promising debut EP, then delivered ten-fold on its follow-up, Destined For Disaster; ramping up anticipation for a proper full-length album.
