HANK PINE AND LILY FAWN North America (independent) Rating: NNNN
Hank Pine and Lily Fawn, both from Victoria, BC, sure have put a heck of a lot of work into their new record, North America. Besides all the usual trials and tribulations of just putting out an indie album, the indie-roots duo have also created a beautifully illustrated 60-page companion comic book as well as a songbook complete with lyrics and guitar tabs.
Perfect for spooky, whisky-shootin' midnight campfires, Pine and Fawn are at their best when they're exuding their Pixies-style weirdo sensibility on tracks like Xanadu and We Can Take You Apart.
Hank and Lily mosey on into Sneaky Dee's on August 10.
