Minor Poet
Minor Poet
Minor Poet is a new indie rock band out of Richmond, VA. Inspired by the harmonies and sounds of classic 60’s groups the Beach Boys and the Zombies, as well as the lo-fi auteurism of artists like the Magnetic Fields and Yo La Tengo, songwriter Andrew Carter holed up in his basement for two months and played every instrument on Minor Poet’s forthcoming debut album. The resulting songs feel neither modern nor nostalgic, but rather exist in their own little world. The lyrics weave in and out of pondering existential crises and fixating on everyday mundanities, referencing Samuel Beckett, Jacques Lacan, Neil Young, Sudoku, and everything in between, ultimately shrugging at the silliness of taking it all too seriously. A stellar cast of Richmond musicians bring the songs to life, including Noma Illmensee (Manatree, Egghunt Records), John Kramer and Jeremy Morris (the Mad Extras)
