It’s been a hot minute since I really indulged in listening to sort of ambient soundscapes…but I really love Julian Lynch. He just announced Rat’s Spit, and with it this brand new single to tease his forthcoming release. The sonic structure seems fairly simple, or at least straightforward, offering a piano line, some fuzz and another wash of electronics before allowing his voice to enter. When his voice does arrive, it quickly moves into angelic tones, which some might see as a nod to Bon Iver. There’s a nice little guitar solo noodling through the track’s midsection too! Rat’s Spit will hit the streets via Underwater Peoples on January 18th.
Sometimes the simplistic innocence of a song really brings home where you are in life, or at least where you might want to go. I can’t explain that, but listening to this new song from Julian Lynch really exemplifies some sort of inner discovery. Perhaps it’s the quirky bit of classical construction, or the quieted vocal that remains barely audible throughout. Whatever it is, this song is just flooring me right now; pretty sure I’m going to play it on repeat all night long. You can find this tune on his new album, Lines, which will be released by Underwater Peoples on March 26th. Buen proveche!
