Julian Lynch - Lines

Thank god for Julian Lynch - were it not for him, the Orange You Glad title would've gone horribly neglected at one point.

Madison, Wisconsin-based Lynch, overeducated creator of something like noise-folk or baroque-pop, what have you, has got a new record shipping out on April 5, called Lines. At this point, genres are just silly, and Lynch is the kind of artist that most music reviewers will drive themselves bonkers over in attempting to describe. Myself included. So what can be said about Lines is that it's dissonant, yet it's apologetically hushed and mild, and it's halfway between Greg Ashley and Gene Defcon.

Listen to and then buy a copy of Lines.
