New Dominant Legs – “Clawing Out At The Walls”

As we mentioned when offering him a BTW, San Francisco’s Ryan Lynch, joined here/there by Hannah Hunt, has an autumnal, jittery sound that’s part Belle & Sebastian funk/part Arthur Russell lullaby/part his own details. At times it reminds me of Kelley Polar as a scruffy Bay Area busker. “Clawing Out At The Walls” floats into an icier, more open-ended direction than the two previous tracks we posted, but it maintains all of the qualities that drew us to the guy in the first place.
