Julian Lynch - Orange You Glad (2009)


Orange You Glad is the debut full-length LP from Julian Lynch, following a string of self-released CD-r's and a recent split 7" with his childhood friend and frequent collaborator Matt Mondanile of Ducktails on the Underwater Peoples label. A talented multi-instrumentalist, Julian has had a busy summer playing countless shows both solo and as a member of Predator Vision, Ducktails, and Real Estate offshoot Alex Bleeker and the Freaks. This album is comprised of 4-track home recordings made in his hometown of Ridgewood, New Jersey and also in Madison, Wisconsin where he is a graduate student in ethnomusicology. His interest in Indian and South Asian music blossomed several years ago when he was living in Washington, D.C. and working for Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. This exposure to their vast library of world music has informed his output, and he blends instruments such as harmonium and tabla with guitar-rock instrumentation. Also of note is his use of circular breathing techniques on the clarinet - often a focal point during his meditative live shows.
