Midwestern Minutes is Defiance, Ohio's fourth full-length album. The album has received considerable airplay in Australia, courtesy of Triple R's Bullying The Jukebox program, for which it topped their 'Best Of 2010' list. All of the songs recorded, mixed, and mastered in March and April 2010 at Russian Recording in Bloomington, IN, except "Diamonds Theme Song" and "Everyone Else on the Other Side" which were recorded in 2009 by the Defiance, Ohio.

Midwestern Minutes bats for folk-punk. It acts as another coming-of-age record in a genre that desperately needs an injection of maturity. And lets face it, folk-punk needs Defiance, Ohio. They spearhead this community of happy-clappy anarchists, defining everything about it; its DIY ethics, its passion for politics and its enthusiasm for playing. It could even be their Can’t Maintain, because if Andrew Jackson Jihad can write an album with structure, then Defiance, Ohio certainly can. They do; they present separate scenes on a romantic and broken society. It’s presented in the true colours of Defiance, Ohio, too. There’s a delightful return to autobiography in The White Shore in which the band declare History is always personal, family is always personal as if to personalise their rock beyond its American clichés.

Enter Midwestern Minutes, the band's 2010 full-length, which sounds somewhat like what the band was attempting to do on The Fear, but with even greater success. They manage to combine the best aspects of The Great Depression with the direction they took on The Fear, making for arguably the band's best album to date. Another strength of the album is the variety within it. "Her Majesty's Midwestern Islands" is likely as poppy and happy as the band has ever been, while "Everyone Else on the Other Side" is probably as heartbreaking as anything they've ever recorded. Dissimilarity Index" is an uneasy, frightened track, while "The Reason" is a sad reminder that we sometimes make plans that can never be seen through when loved ones pass away.
