Shipwrecks & Dreamboats

by Madsen Minax & The Homoticons

This epic double volume is a somber and fluid, rich and complex, gritty and raw, and an absolutely hopeful expression of indie pop through a lo-fi acoustic lens. (We could think of a few more adjectives too)

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Shipwrecks and Dreamboats was made in a closet and a basement during the fall and winter of 2009, and very much feels like a record made for a wintery listening experience. This epic double volume marks a return to a more grounded and somber musical expression for Minax, after performing bluegrass music exclusively for several years with the duet Actor Slash Model. Suggestive of and influenced by indie pop music such as Arcade Fire and The New Pornographers, but expressed through a lo-fi acoustic lens; those influences including Joan of Arc, Lou Reed, and Johnny Cash, amongst many others.

Shipwrecks and Dreamboats is a grand collage of vocal harmonies, witty and soulful lyricism, complex arrangements and acousto-indie dreams.

This album has been hand screened in a limited edition of 500 copies. Inside are both discs (disc 1: Shipwrecks and disc 2: Dreamboats, each full length), as well as a lyric zine, also in editions of 500.
