Episode Info:

St. Lenox is an American indie pop outfit from Columbus and Brooklyn, helmed by Andrew Choi, who works as an attorney in New York City. Writing in the vein of modern American social realism, Choi's most recent record, Ten Hymns From My American Gothic, discusses progressivism, immigration and family, set in the Iowa midwest. PopMatters, rating the record 9/10, calls it "nothing short of a 21st century pop masterpiece" with AllMusic similarly praising it as an example of "true 21st century songwriting." The Harvard Crimson proclaims it a “stellar album, covering the experience of the children of immigrants from the emotional highs of boundless optimism to cultural disconnect … one of the most interesting releases of the year.” Salon calls the record one of the most "criminally underrated albums to come out" in 2016.
