Julian Lynch is as mainstay on the pages of The Daily Choice as any artist I can think of and I’m actually kicking myself for waiting so long to post this new track of his upcoming (April 26th) LP Terra. It has the sort of sparse, worldly intensity I’ve come to love from Mr. Lynch, the tendrils of his voice wrapping around and around themselves with a chunky combo of drum and guitar slowly propelling them forward in to a spaced-out bit of guitar drone.
Feels like all the old favorites are circling the wagons in these early days of 2011. The always prolific Julian Lynch isn’t one to miss a wagon-party, so the forthcoming release of his new album Terra comes as no surprise. The title track off the album is the sort of rambling mix of woodwinds, bongos, synths and good times I’ve come to expect from Julian Lynch. The light brush of the drums and the haunting blasts of lips-pressed-to-reeds produces a sonic meadow in the midst of a lush, dangerous jungle. Lions, tigers and bears are out there, fangs revealed, but Julian Lynch is relaxing on a gingham blanket, with a wicker basket full of sandwiches cushioned next to him.
