Current Album - The Sinking of The President Lincoln (2013)
The President Lincoln began as a lo-fi and lo-budget recording project of singer-songwriter Alex Maws who recorded "The Sinking of the President Lincoln" on his laptop in the spare room of his London home. For the better part of a year, Maws mostly recorded alone, but aided by a cast of 24 contributors who have never all been in the same country at the same time, let alone in the same studio. Collaborations took place over email between musicians in London, England; Austin, TX; Los Angeles, CA and Asheville, NC.
This Could Be Our Country is a land held up by buzzing pillars of slots and arcades. It is an in-between world that is neither field green nor field grey. On the map it lies between generations, between sexes, an oasis, like a faded English Las Vegas.
