ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hank Pine and Lily Fawn are a vaudeville-inspired duo from Victoria, British Columbia, whose act is based upon the tragic and hilarious adventures of their comic book series. Like the great acts of old, the music covers many genres, yet all stems from a punk rock ethic, and an appreciation for the delicate art of entertaining.

Hank is a tall, dark, and mysterious figure in goggles and a mask that carries his dead girlfriend around in a garbage bag, plays the cello, keyboards, guitars, ukulele, accordion, drums and whatever else he can get his hands on.

Lily, a half-deer, half-human forest creature, that tap-dances and plays the musical saw, the trumpet, the theremin, the flute, and hits the drums like a six-foot sledgehammer.

This album, "North America" serves as a soundtrack to the third issue of their comic book, and showcases both their adoration of gospel, country and punk music brought to you with a manic sense of humor.

Brad at CD Baby


It's not often that you come across an album from a group whose act is based upon their comic book series. Admittedly, the concept sounds a little wacky, but don't they know it. Check out this group's bio for a brief encapsulation of their character's backstories; you'll quickly realize this ain't your run-of-the-mill pop/folk swampy-cabaret duo. While Hank takes the vocal low end, Lily handles the highs, squeaking her delicate voice up to brightly heliumic levels. The juxtaposition of their vocal approaches is only one aspect of their truly individual sound. While it can be hard at times to figure out exactly what instruments are being played on certain songs, this only adds to the ramshackle traveling-sideshow and slightly gospel-infused thematics that channel their way through these 14 tracks. The whole thing feels like both a open-ended road trip and an ode to home, with tracks that seem vaguely familiar yet a million miles away. If you're looking for a new adventure in country/folk/punk/psych/gypsy rock, buy some of this tonic.
