And you will dig it. It’s by a guy named Julian Lynch. “Who is this mysterious new artist,” you might be wondering…Wonder no more!
Julian Lynch is a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison attempting to get his PhD in ethnomusicology (quite the major). Lynch has a tremendous appreciation for world music as seen in stunning sophomore LP, Mare (2010). This week, Lynch released his third proper album, Terra, to much anticipation. Terra delves into those exotic sounds seen in Mare. On the stellar title track, “Terra”, Lynch creates a wonderful backdrop that showcases an earthy and natural flavor of sound. The rhythm is calm, and his tone is sincere, but the song is as dynamic as it is relaxing.
