Julian Lynch – “Northline” Video

Atmospheric pop-experimentalist Julian Lynch has been known to put out some … experimental music videos (here’s looking at you, “decrepit stuffed rabbit doll”). His latest, though, seems to be an experiment in cuteness. In the clip for “Northside,” a lazy, flowering acoustic arrangement from Lynch’s latest album Lines, various puppies hang their heads mystically out… More »

Julian Lynch – “Gloves” Video

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… More »

Stream Julian Lynch Lines

The New Jersey bedroom-psych wooze-artist Julian Lynch makes music that sounds the way your brain feels when you’re at work and your kid has kept you up all night (not that I’m speaking from experience or anything). His fourth album of the stuff, Lines, is set to drop next week, and we’ve already posted hi… More »

Julian Lynch – “Gloves”

In January, we heard Julian Lynch’s first single “Carlos Kelleyi I” off his fourth album, Lines, due out later this month. His most recent release, “Gloves,” is like a lullaby; Lynch’s lilting voice is woven into layered instrumental arrangements in order to create a sound that borders between the waking and dream world. Listen below. More »

Julian Lynch – “Carios Kelleyi I”

New Jersey psychedelic experimentalist/University of Wisconsin-Madison Anthropology and Ethnomusicology PhD student Julian Lynch has released three albums of woozy, textured, folk-inflected dream-state pop, and his fourth, Lines, is due out in March. “Carios Kelleyi I” will be included on Lines and it is a wonder: a rippling, amorphous gem that seems to exist on the… More »

Julian Lynch – “Back” Video

In the video for “Back,” a song by the lo-fi artist Julian Lynch, a mysterious silhouetted figure sits on riverbanks and mountains and rooftops, playing music. He also smashes a keyboard in impressive fashion. Ezra Ewen directs. Watch it below. More »

Julian Lynch – “Temple Dance” & “Dream Of A Thousand Nights”

Jersey lo-fi mafia consigliere and heady sound-warper Julian Lynch is getting ready to release an EP of twinkly instrumental music that he recorded for the animated film How Mata Hari Lost Her Head And Found Her Body.

Julian Lynch – “Untitled”

Julian Lynch’s warping, wobbling Mare offers an enjoyable trip down memory lane for folks who used to view Forced Exposure and Chemical Imbalance as druggier versions of the New Testament. Even if you didn’t — or have no idea what I’m going on about — it should be easy enough to enjoy the underwater loner… More »

Julian Lynch – “In New Jersey” Video

I mentioned Julian Lynch’s Garden State affiliations when posting “Just Enough.” Fittingly, he’s followed it up with fellow Mare track, “In New Jersey.” The trippy Stephanie Wuertz-directed video for the song involves a kid hunting bear, finding a zoned-out fallen horse (a bit too young to be a mare) in the process. Someone’s been taking… More »

Julian Lynch – “Just Enough”

Real Estate and Ducktails cohort, graduate of Summertime Showcases past, and all-around New Jersey Freak Julian Lynch has a full-length Mare forthcoming on Olde English Spelling Bee. The gently psychedelic slacker-seeming “Just Enough” opens things with a drone-y Sun City Girls-sorta raga, the smeary vocals reminiscent of something Olivia Tremor Control might’ve done in their… More »

New Julian Lynch Video – “Seed”

Ducktails affiliate (and by extension Real Estate affiliate) Julian Lynch’s “Seed” is a warped and wobbling slice of somnambulatory bedroom psych, and director Amy Ruhl seizes on its bleary eyed tide with soft shots of a boy rubbing the sleep out of his eyes, postcards of mountains with rising ocean waves, full moons, and undulating… More »

ButterxFace Pays Tribute To MJ

Fellow Underwater Peoples enthusiasts ButterxFace have released their much anticipated (by me at least) scuzzy pop tribute to the King. You’re more than ready to take The Essential Michael Jackson off your iPod, so this collection is a welcome alternative. The comp’s called Chum Onah (as in “I’m bad, I’m bad / Chum onah”) and… More »
