Minor Poet is the brainchild of Richmond, VA’s Andrew Carter, who holed up in his basement for two months and played every instrument on Minor Poet’s debut album And How!, released by Egghunt Records (Lucy Dacus, Eric Slick, Avers) on August 25th, 2017. 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, 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), Jeremy Morris (the Mad Extras) and Micah Head.
