Julian Lynch's knack for submerged pop might betray his Ridgewood NJ roots, but his music is as much about timbre as it is melody and rhythm. Maybe this stems from his ethnomusicology background, or influences that range from the Cocteau Twins to Kadri Gopalnath.
Julian Lynch stops by WFMU (January 2011) for a special acoustic set joined by Ian of Big Troubles and Brody of Family Portrait. Brody's Underwater Peoples imprint has released a great smattering of JL recordings (including a split with likeminded New Jerseyan Ducktails), while two 12'' LPs are available from Olde English Spelling Bee. These releases plus a handful of cdr's can be found in various formats here. Julian Lynch will be touring Europe this summer, including a stop at the Primavera Sound Festival in May.
