Sarah Kinlaw, che è anche regista oltre che cantante dei SoftSpot (vi avevamo proposto l’album Ensō qualche tempo fa), ha diretto il video per il brano Gloves di Julian Lynch , dal suo nuovo disco Lines .
Julian Lynch: Lines - I don't know what this album is trying to say, mostly because I can't understand what Julian himself is actually saying, but maybe, just maybe that's alright. In fact, that may be the best part. Perhaps the music is not about imparting a message. Lines is a canvas and Julian Lynch uses many brushes and colors with which to paint. I may not know art, but I know what I like. And I like this. I've heard Julian Lynch described as experimental folk and I [...]

A beleza de Julian Lynch , em particular da sua música, é tudo menos óbvia... Há toda uma estranheza no artista americano que se por um lado nos desconcerta ao mesmo tempo também nos encanta. "Gloves" é o mais recente single retirado de Lines, último álbum de Julian Lynch editado a 26 de Março pela Underwater Peoples Records, e para além do psicadelismo que suavemente rompe pela folk já de si peculiar do artista, teve também direito a um videoclip que se passeia entre o fofinho e o bizarro e que no seu final nos [...]
New video from Julian Lynch - the track is lifted from the artist's latest gem, the excellent Lines.
El mes pasado, Julian Lynch estrenó de manera oficial su nuevo disco titulado "Lines", cuyo segundo sencillo ya ha recibido un tratamiento visual bastante atractivo que, en lo personal, me parece que no querrán dejar pasar. Sarah Kinlaw fue la mente detrás de todo el concepto de este vídeo para " Gloves ", mismo que pueden disfrutar a continuación. Julian Lynch: Myspace / Bandcamp
Musician/ethnomusicologist/PhD student Julian Lynch released a whimsical and creepy video for his track " Gloves " off of the album Lines , released last month. In the video - directed by Sarah Kinlaw - a girl wakes up to find her decrepit stuffed rabbit doll staring at her. What follows is a lot of half-comedic, half-ritualistic dancing, some gold pixie dust, and an attempt to bring an inanimate friend back to life. Watch below. Read More...

Feast your ears on this: one of the best singles' playlist of new bands so far this year. Of course, the predominant buzz about this weeks' new releases revolves around new albums by heavy-hitter bands like Wavves, The Strokes and Depeche Mode and Wire leading the way. Here's where it gets even better - there [...] Read more, get songs or stream the entire mix on Indie Rock Cafe
Hersendood na weer een geweldige editie van het KRAAK festival? Nee, een kleine hoeveelheid cellen houdt dapper stand. De auditieve cortex is in ieder geval nog intact, want ook deze maand is het gelukt het kaf van het koren te scheiden. Van de akoestische black metal van Urpf Lanze , via de minimalistische drones van Éliane Radigue naar de slidegitaar improvisaties van Jon Collin ; op het eerste gehoor rustige muziek, doch met een intense uitwerking. Intens was ook het release schema van maart, vooral in de staart. [...]
As per Julian Lynch’ s MO, Lines sounds like a musical prodigy rubbing up against the “wrong” crowd, discovering drum circles and worn psych records when he should be woodshedding in the practice room. Through three LPs and various other releases, we’ve watched Lynch come to terms with that written/rote dichotomy, making home recorded music both oblique and comprehensible. On Lines , Lynch’s fourth full-length and second for the Underwater Peoples label, he’s more ecstatic, focused, and fun than ever, recalling Lindsay Buckingham’s bright acoustic plucking, the ramshackle wanderings of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, the energetic [...]
Wholesome is not an expression you should usually attribute (unless you're trying to be offensive) to the sound quality of the instruments on an indie rock album. Most indie and pop music is rooted in a rock and blues tradition based partially on ideas of discomfort and immediacy, in stark opposition to choir music and most chamber music before the 20th century. But Julian Lynch’s Lines - an indie rock album in its own right - is wholesome, and warm, and sounds fit for a chamber performance. This is not because the songs, in and of themselves, are [...]
What Lines means, what it wants to say, is still buried in all these noises, but luckily the noises themselves have enough charm to carry the day. Julian Lynch has always sort of hinted at vibe with his album titles. Despite the inherent hush of his sound, Mare move gracefully forward over the soft ground of Lynch's not-quite-folk leanings. Terra did indeed feel slightly more grounded, if still opaque, than its predecessor. But Lines has no inherent boundaries. There's somehow a meticulous attention to pristine detail and a completely obscured sound all at once. The echoed finger-picking [...]
