St. Lenox “Ten Hymns From My American Gothic” released today via midheaven.com, ITUNES, etc.

St. Lenox releases his follow-up today after his well received debut “Ten Songs of Memory and Hope”, early praise for “Ten Hymns”

Stereogum:  “Choi’s voice is one of the most striking instruments in music today, a harsh and commanding howl that reminds me of John Darnielle, Michael Stipe, and Xiu Xiu’s Jamie Stewart but is something entirely its own.  His subject matter is equally transfixing and unique, a mix of queer love songs, protest music, and savvy observations about the modern American experience.”

Consequence of Sound:  Top 10 Songs of the Week

Vulture:  This Week’s Best New Music

John Darnielle: “St. Lenox is so good and should be massively famous and revered.”

Bloomberg Big Law Business:  “This Thurgood Marshall ode is unexpectedly catchy.”

Noisey/VICE:  “St. Lenox, he of the nasal baritone and piercingly observant quotidian lyrics, is back … ‘People From Other Cultures’ is not an easy song, but like all of Choi’s music, it’s casually beautiful.”
