The 2009 release from Wax Mannequin.
The Zunior Music Label proudly presents Saxon, the brand new album from Hamilton, Ontario's Wax Mannequin. A tireless and talented iconoclast, Wax Mannequin is a maniacal force of nature and Saxon, his fifth full-length album, is his crowning achievement.
Following up the critical acclaim of 2007's Orchard & Ire, Wax returns to his gritty psych-folk roots on Saxon, all the while giving new appreciation for the versatility of a classical guitar. Recorded with Andy Magoffin at the House of Miracles and backed up by Black Blood (Mark Raymond on bass and Aidan Campbell on percussion) Saxon is a testament to the complex songwriting and evocative lyrics upon which Wax Mannequin has built his much-lauded career.
"...Wax Mannequin delivers folk with a vivaciousness that is all too lacking in the often be a listless genre." - T.O. Snobs Music
