Minor Poet “Judith Beheading Holofernes ” – Listen

Minor Poet is Richmond (Virginia) based musician Andrew Carter who has recorded an album – And How! – which is a testament to the beauty of music found in the most unexpected places.   It’s his debut solo album and was written, performed, and recorded entirely by him over roughly two months.  Judith Beheading Holofernes is the first track to be shared – there are hints of the harmonies of the Beach Boys or The Zombies, and more than a touch of Josh Ritter in the lyrics.  It’s lethargically melodic, and completely devoid of graphic descriptions of head removal (which is something of a bonus).

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
