Julian Lynch – “Hexagonal Field”

New Jersey’s psychedelic experimentalist Julian Lynch has been making woozy, atmospheric music for almost a decade now. Since 2013’s fourth offering Lines, he’s shared the one-off “May” for a 2016 Dig That Treasure! charity compilation and replaced Matt Mondanile as Real Estate’s lead guitarist all the while in pursuit of a joint PhD in anthropology and ethnomusicology.

Now, in between Real Estate albums, he’s directing his focus back on his solo career with the forthcoming nine-track collection Rat’s Spit. And today we’re getting its second single “Hexagonal Field,” the follow-up to November’s lead “Meridian.” Lynch’s breathy vocals bleed into his astral dreamscape textured with sparkling chimes and and fuzzy whirs. It’s a gentle groove that sounds like it’s been pushed through a surging underwater current.
