The enigmatic 2007 release from Wax Mannequin.

Always original and conveying an infectious enthusiasm, Wax Mannequin returns with his fourth full-length album, Orchard & Ire, full of captivating fist-pumpers for the angry poets.

"This one-man band has such impressive control over the musical subtleties he tinkers and fucks with that an album like Orchard & Ire deserves to be listened to several times to allow everything to sink in...Strange?

"Even when Hamilton's Chris Adeney strikes a subdued note, as he does here, he still seems animated, almost extravagantly so, as though he's determined to draw attention to the artifice at the heart of all music while simultaneously trying to convey genuine sincerity." - The Star
